Arizona Black Rattlesnake from a New Locale

It feels good being right about stuff, especially after some hard work. I had an idea about new locations to find Arizona Black Rattlesnakes, Crotalus cerberus, and got to work looking at maps. A few days later, here’s the result; a big rattlesnake laying in ambush near a waterhole. It’s a great feeling to see these in general, but it’s especially fun when they prove a theory.

He’s pretty cool looking, too.

    Wow! It looks massive. Great pic (as usual!), beautiful snake (as are they all).

    I finally got to see one of those, on a dirt road north of Lake Pleasant. It’s the only one I’ve ever seen in the wild. Beautiful creatures.

    cool photos

    This specie is one of the less know species of rattlesnakes, i think
    But i think is one of the most beautiful
