That is the canebrake/timber rattlesnake, they won't warn you with a rattle like the diamondback varieties.

I 2nd that. They are not one to rattle. They seem slow too and not aggressive like a cottonmouth, but due to their normal large size, carrying an extra pair of boxers is always a good thing.

Last year at Bayou Teche NWR, I got lucky. I almost stepped on top of one about that size, but luckly I got a warning. She rattled. Talk about scare the crap out of me. I left her be and went on my way. All I had was a walking stick.
