"I recollected that her eye excelled in brightness, that of any other animal, and that she has no eye-lids. She may therefore be esteemed an emblem of vigilance. She never begins an attack, nor, when once engaged, ever surrenders. She is therefore an emblem of magnanimity and true courage. As if anxious to prevent all pretensions of quarreling with her, the weapons with which nature has furnished her, she conceals in the roof of her mouth, so that, to those who are unacquainted with her, she appears to be a most defenseless animal, and even when those weapons are shown and extended for her defense, they appear weak and contemptible; but their wounds however small, are decisive and fatal. Conscious of this, she never wounds 'till she has generously given notice, even to her enemy, and cautioned him against the danger of treading on her." #rattlesnake #snake #snakes #animals #diamondback #easterndiamondbackrattlesnake #beautiful #friday #tgif #benjaminfranklin #donttreadonme

Who's ready for some #nepg this weekend in #indiana #muddobbers ........ 📸of @slbaylor5 at the #rattlesnake #enduro #DC📸

Thanks to the brave efforts of our law enforcement, the entrance to Symbol Bridge is no longer rattling. In most situations we would not move animals from areas, but the new location for the rattle snake is safer for it and humans alike - meaning it was a good decision!

#rattlesnake in the front yard! Thank you to the fire department for taking it away.

An eastern diamondback rattlesnake I found last night out in the glades. These large and impressive venomous snakes once had a bite mortality rate over 90% in old Florida before modern medical care was easily accessible. That being said, for what they are capable of doing, they are incredibly shy and want absolutely nothing to do with humans. Many people think that if a rattlesnake is rattling at them the snake is saying that it wants to attack, it is actually saying the complete and total opposite! it is giving you a warning to let you know that it is there and it does NOT want to bite you but in fact let you know of its presence so you can avoid it. Think about it, if it wanted to bite you why would it be announcing that it's there? The snake is saying leave me alone and don't make me defend myself. It's also important to note that the majority of venomous snake bites in the USA are young men with a little alcohol in their system, as in they are provoked bites where they are harassing or tying to kill the snake. If left alone they will leave you alone. Photographed with a Canon 80D, 10-17mm fisheye lens. If you enjoy my photos I always read and appreciate comments, also feel free to share and see more at my website www.ChrisGillette.com #viper #venomous #venomoussnake #snake #reptile #rattlesnake #easterndiamondback #florida #everglades #southflorida #herping #fieldherping #glades #respect #coexist #wideangle #fisheye #fisheyelens

Did you know there are only 29-32 species of rattlesnake, all native to the Americas? 13 of them are found in Arizona alone!⠀
•⠀
What?!? 29-32 species?!? That is correct... ish. It depends who you ask, what you read or what website you browse. There are an additional 60-83 subspecies, again depending on your source. Guess you really can't believe everything you read!⠀
•⠀
Whether it's 29 or 32 it's still not very many species. Maybe I should make a goal of photographing each species? Certainly sounds like a great excuse to take some trips!⠀
