Crotalus horridus (Timber Rattlesnake)

East Texas 05-26-13

 

In situ

 

It was a goal of mine to field herp one of these; finding one in habitat and not under tin or on the road. Today I visited some property I had expected to hold a decent population of this snake. After no more than fifteen minutes of walking, I nearly stepped on this gorgeous individual.

 

This snake was never touched.
