Snakes Alive, Part Deux


Tonight’s slithery critter earned a wider berth. I discovered this Western Diamond-backed Rattlesnake (Crotalus atrox) when walking out to close the gate (forgive the poor photo quality, I used my cell phone). Good thing I spotted it, snakes aren’t terribly fond of being stepped on.

I think I’ll leave a note for my back yard kingsnake suggesting it move to the front yard!

  1. Good Idea!!!! Maybe your kingsnake has a gopher snake friend that would also like to hang out at your house!
