Field notes and photography by Bryan D. Hughes

Pennsylvania, 2012

For the second year in a row, I flew out to Pennsylvania to meet some friends and go in search of Timber Rattlesnakes, and any of the other very non-desert herpetofauna there is to see. Without the who’s and where’s, within 4 hours of stepping off the plane we were staring at our first Crotalus horridus, 4 of them in fact, all babies sitting out in light rain.

These are the first two, with more to come. We found 11 total at this spot, with the adults nowhere to be found except for signs that we just missed them.
