Moja-Oy-Vey Rattlesnake

Mojave Rattlesnake

Crotalus scutulatus

   

When I came across this Mojave rattlesnake, it instantly coiled up with its head under its coil. Unfortunately his hiding would not have prevented him from being killed by a rancher I encountered just minutes before who informed me that he had just killed 4 rattlesnakes he saw on the road.
