Texas Men Discover Rattlesnake Den Under Hunt Cabin

By author of The Realblog with Stephanie Mallory

If you've got a thing against snakes, you may not want to watch this video. For some, it's the stuff of nightmares. 

Bobby Cowan was working with friends on his property in Eastland County, Texas, when he noticed a snake make its way underneath his cabin.

Cowan and his buddies decided to lift the cabin with a skid loader to get a better look at the snake. But when they lifted the building, they got much more than they bargained for.  As you can see, there was a whole wad of rattlers underneath that cabin -- at least 30 by Cowan's count. You can see them slithering about and hanging from wooden boards.  

The startled guys let the building back down, but managed to lift it once more to capture video of the nest. As you can guess, the video instantly went viral on Facebook where it has been viewed more than 3 million times.
