Thanks to Kayla Larson for this photo, which was taken off Kirker Pass on Wednesday night.
Love this picture…I would dare that bite; just poke a stick at it, or if you have bad KARMA, it will bite you anyway.
Total Corn snake …
Hmmmmm……. reminds me of my ex-girlfriend.
What a tongue!
I said this a while ago, when there is a fire the snakes will come out. period.
These guys don’t even coil up when I walk by – I tell them to just keep stretching out to enjoy their sunbath. Maximum strike distance is 1/3 of body length, so stay several feet away and you’re OK. The main advice from park rangers is to watch where you put your feet and where you put your hands when on the trail. Oh, and it’s a good reason to keep your dog on a leash; they like to stick their noses into holes to smell things – sometimes there’s a rattler there.
I passed by one, and it didn’t coil at all.
As designs for stealth and stalking go, rattlesnake is hard to beat. How cool.
it simply wants a kiss on the nose.
I would dare anyone to pick up one of these snakes with there bare hands!!!!!
Lighten up Francis
My friends at Rossmore report that a dog was recently bitten, and that the Rattlers are even found on sidewalks on warm nights.
Thank goodness for this hot weather, we almost ran out of rattlesnakes to handle at the Saturday night Church service!
i still see you. ….
What a healthy little rattler. I hope it eats many rodents in its day!
Anon, all rattlers eat mice and rats.
This is why I am afraid to hike up on Lime Ridge or any place in the grass.
Those rattlesnakes are here to stay. Nice photo! Hope you were using your zoom lens!!
I think you have that wrong. I believe that’s the Claycord otter.
Glad you didn’t run out of rattlers to handle; service would have run amuck if someone put their hands into an empty container while you’re preaaching.
What a cutie, looks as though he just shed his skin.
