Field notes and photography by Bryan D. Hughes

While carrying one of our boats over land to avoid rapids while fishing the Teton river with my dad, we were lucky enough to find this Great Basin Rattlesnake, Crotalus oreganus lutosus, out for a morning stroll. I was able to get a few photos before being swarmed with ants.

    Beautiful snake. I had the fortune of going to Yellowstone and the Tetons this summer, but didn’t see any rattlers. We did find two western terrestrial garters, a boreal toad, and a boreal chorus frog in one day 😀
