A Seven Foot Adder.

New York, 1895

John G. Barker, a painter of Northport, went into his woodshed to secure his basket that he takes with him fishing, and was startled to find a large snake coiled up in the basket asleep. He killed the snake, which proved to be a flat-headed adder measuring seven feet long.

—The Long Island Farmer, Jamaica, NY, July 5, 1895, p. 1.
