Sidewinders Float!

We (being Rattlesnake Solutions) remove a few sidewinders a year, but this one was a little bit of a surprise. It was in a pool, puffed up and floating like a balloon. I’ve never seen a snake float quite this well. Maybe this is a way to survive in the sandy flat areas where they live.

It was relocated after I took a quick phone picture.
