Filthy Beast, while I was visiting my brother inlaw at Flaming Gorge lake in Wy. he told me to look out for rattle snakes! Me being a good ole Kansan, I expected to see a timber rattler or at least somthing like it.
Next morning while sitting around the campfire he suddenly yells out,
RATTLE SNAKE RIGHT BEHIND YOU!!!!!!!
I jump up and scramble, then come back to see the snake.
Ok, so here's this little snake (looks about like your picture) its called a
"Pygmy Rattlesnake" they dont get very big and they are slow and I doubt they would even bite you, not that I would have let him!
So far in my 50 plus years living in Ks. I have killed 6 rattle snakes, the biggest had 13 rattles. I skined and tanned him and mounted him to a board, nice conversation starter.........jdadoug
