This is the one and only living Western Diamondback, Crotalus atrox, I’ve seen in a mountainous area of Yavapai county. Nothing striking, but still clean and attractive nonetheless.

So beautiful! Why aren’t they found in Yavapai? Too high/cold?
I think I said it wrong … there are LOTS of them in Yavapai county, it’s just that I haven’t seen many in this particular area in the very limited time I had spent there. This photo was taken last summer, and since then I’ve seen a good many. It’s just interesting how every few miles the look will change just a little.
