Dark Diamondback from North Phoenix Area

Here’s a cool looking Western Diamondback Rattlesnake (Crotalus atrox) from the North Phoenix area with a lot more dark/chocotate coloration than the more typical greys I see around here. He was very large and fat too, and posed nicely for some photos in the morning sun.
