Don't know if there is a record for the most records involving snakes but Jackie Bibby would seem to be a contender. He's known as the Texas Snake Man. He spent 45 minutes in a tub of 87 venomous rattle snakes, shattering his previous record by 12 snakes. Bibby also made the Guinness book for holding ten rattlesnakes by their tails in his mouth. He'll try to topple that one as well. He's going for 11.
