Prairie Rattler

Prairie Rattlesnake, Crotalus viridis viridis


Post, Texas


I find the prairie rattlesnake to be one of the most strikingly patterned snakes I've encountered. Unfortunately many people don't share my sentiments regarding these fascinating creatures and kill them whenever they're seen. I have come across many a dead snake that were killed by ill-informed ranchers in Texas.
