    The Timber Rattlesnake



    Thought you would like this one Ash, this is remarkable footage!

    Crotalus horridus, the timber rattlesnake, is a species of venomous pitviper found in the eastern United States. This is the only rattlesnake species in most of the populous northeastern United States. No subspecies are currently recognized.

    Adults usually grow to an average length of 91152 cm (35.8-59.8 in). The maximum reported length is 189.2 cm (74.5 in). Holt (1924) mentions a large specimen caught in Montgomery County, Alabama, that had a total length of 159 cm (62.6 in) and weighed 2.5 kg (5.5 lb).

    That was so stealth!
    Just because you have an animal that isn't dead yet, doesn't mean you know how to care for it.

    You are so lucky! I can't find their dens in NJ and their populations are being decimated due to human overpopulation. I've heard a few other acquaintances in NY say they have some dens near them. I need to know where to go to see them hahaha. Would you be willing to PM me their locations in NY? I want to photograph them! I have been searching the "strongholds" in NJ to no avail.

    Linky, thank you for this film. Rattlesnakes make me so happy. I always say "rattlesnake, rattlesnake, give me a shake." Stupid, I know. -but they just make me crazy with happiness.

    Poor mouse though

    Any chance of PMing me the location? I have family on both sides of MA. I used to live in the Berkshires and never saw more than garter snakes (which are great but not very diverse).
