Big Fat Tiger Rattlesnake in the Superstition Mountains

This is the second live Tiger Rattlesnake, Crotalus tigris, I ever found in Arizona. I was a moron and forgot to load up my headlamp and camera with new batteries, so had to do a bit of a shuffle to get him to hold still while I got my crap together. These snakes are awesome and the first few I found just looked so weird to me with their tiny heads and fat bodies. True specialists.
