Look at these up close & personal pictures of a rattler in Briones Regional Park.
Jeff, who took the pictures, says he “saw him in the middle of the walking path Saturday in Briones park. He had just shed his skin. I moved him off the path with a stick so the dogs and bicyclists wouldn’t get him.”
That was nice of you, although we recommend never touching a rattler, even if it’s only with a stick. Good job though.
