despite the expression I was happy to find this big healthy guy alive after finding a freshly DOR Thamnophis. ūüėĀ Like most of the adults I find there was no defensive display from this one.

Mojave Rattlesnake - Crotalus scutulatus

Swipe ‚ě°ÔłŹ
Cruised my first Mojave Rattlesnake (Crotalus scutulatus) of the year over the weekend. For me, few things beat seeing a large (live) rattlesnake stretched out on a road - especially if said rattlesnake is a Mojave. As you can see, it only started rattling once I approached it and interrupted it's basking. Here's to many more this year.

take your time, think a lot, think of everything you've got - for you will still be here tomorrow but your dreams may not
Happy Father's Day

Swipe ‚ě°ÔłŹ for some photos of this awesome patch-nosed snake - as found crossing a dirt road, a close up, and a full body shot. Without a doubt the best looking patchy I've ever seen. --
