Western Diamondback Rattlesnake

Here’s yet another pretty typical-looking Western Diamondback Rattlesnake, Crotalus atrox, out and about in the Spring.

    So sorry you felt the need to be nasty when commenting on our blog. Have you or someone you care about ever been bitten by a rattlesnake, have you ever had a pet killed by a rattlesnake?? I can answer yes to both those questions–our six year old granddaughter was bitten by a rattlesnake in our driveway spending several nights in intensive care. I have had two dogs killed by rattlesnakes in my lifetime. So continue your love affair with rattlesnakes but leave my blog out of it.

    I said nothing nasty.

    So you’re killing them out in the wild for what, revenge? You’d be keeping your family a lot safer if you were to educate and train them about how to live in an area with venomous snakes. All you’re doing by sending some tough guy to kill them is putting him in danger too. Being scared of something isn’t a justifiable reason to kill it when you are not in danger.
