On a recent outing in less-than-ideal conditions revealed the first neonate rattlesnakes I’ve seen in 2009. We found this first tiny Mojave Rattlesnake, Crotalus scutulatus, on the move.
I forgot something in the truck, and on the 20 foot walk to retrieve it I found another; most likely from the same mother.
Further down the road we found one more of this species. We did not see any other species, or adult snakes. I will often find very young babies out in conditions that other snakes would rather not be out in.
