Man stuffs nine rattlesnakes in mouth in world record stunt

WHISKEY FLATS, Texas (AP) - A man stuffed the tails of nine live rattlesnakes in his mouth Tuesday, besting his record of eight.

"I have to break my own records. Heck, there's nobody else who can do it," Jackie Bibby told the Fort Worth Star-Telegram for its online edition Tuesday. "I think I could do 12 or 13, but probably no more. My mouth is only so big."

Bibby holds the world record for sitting in a bathtub with the most live snakes - 75 Western Diamondbacks, according to Guinness World Records. He planned to break that record Tuesday by sitting in a tub with more than 81 snakes, but the snakes wouldn't cooperate and Bibby had to quit after only about 40 were dumped on him.

Bibby, 52, has performed snake stunts for television shows and other events. This time it was for the 50th anniversary of the Guinness World Records book, which is due out in September and sent a photographer to record the Tuesday event.

In a field behind his mobile home in Whiskey Flats, a community about 25 miles southwest of Fort Worth, Bibby banded nine snakes together by their rattles and wedged the tails into his mouth. He leaned forward from the waist and held still for 10 seconds, the snakes dangling down.

For the record to be official, Bibby said, each snake has to be at least 26 or 27 inches long. Each weighs at least 1.5 pounds.

Bibby, who works in marketing for a drug treatment center, said he has been bitten six times in 34 years of snake handling.

In most of these stunts, they cool the snakes down. Diamondbacks, more so then other rattlers, are very protective of their trails. Hence, that famous diamondback pose. I donít think he could have held one diamond by the tail for 10 seconds, let alone 9, unless they were cooled. I saw this yahoo set the record for sitting in a tub of rattlesnakes. I wish him well, and I hope he breaks his own records. I sure hope he knows what will happen of one of those big Atrox senses the extra heat in his crotch region and strikes at it. ha ha ha ha ha

oh my.....i wonder how he first decided that was a good idea..."hey i think i'll go swallow 8 snakes and see what happens..." lol
If a man is talking in the woods, and there is no woman there to hear him, is he still wrong?

I agree. Let's hope that one actually does bite him in the "junk" so that any future generations of fools are prevented!

Oh the plus side if a Diamondback bites him in the crotch and he's unable to reproduce he gets to go up for a Darwin award right next to his Guiness record
