Everything is bigger in Texas... including this rattlesnake and the cajones that cat has for staring it down within easy striking distance!

The epic face off took place in Laguna Vista, TX and the police department there ended up capturing the massive reptilian beast after it was seen on a trail by bird watchers.

Apparently rattlesnakes come out of hibernation this time of year so if you're planning on being out and about where rattlesnakes like to hang, like the Rio Grande Valley, I personally recommend that you are highly vigilant!

Check out pictures from Facebook of the snake's capture and see how really big this creepy critter is!
