World record broken at Okeene Rattlesnake Hunt

A world record was broken this weekend, unofficially at least, as Pennsylvania resident Dave Thomas broke the previous record of sharing a bathtub with 195 snakes by sharing his tub with 200 snakes. The record was set at approximately 4:04 p.m. Saturday afternoon in Okeene.

The record is still technically unofficial at this point as Thomas will be required to provide proof of his feat to the folks at Guinness World Records. Guinness requires a significant amount of documentation in order to support a world record. During Thomas’ attempt, film footage was being prepared from start to finish of the entire record breaking process. The requirements also include witness statements, which shouldn’t be much of a problem due to the hundreds that braved the cold to witness the event.
