squiler Since I'm not cool enough to see one of these in the wild, work with them, or own one (yet) I take pictures of ones at the zoo I volunteer at including all the other reptiles just trying to make the best of my situation!

Eastern diamondback rattlesnake

Latin name: Crotalus adamanteus
Range: Southeastern United States
Diet: small mammals, birds
Lifespan: 20~ years or more

Populations of this impressive snake are in decline due to habitat loss and fragmentation. Legal protection may be needed to insure the future survival of this magnificent species.

North America's largest venomous snake (record 8'3") uses its ability to blend into the environment (cryptic camouflage) to ambush its prey and avoid predation.

Its rattle can vibrate as fast as 60-105 cycles per second.

Albino forms may occur in the wild but rarely survive as they lack cryptic camouflage.

tonyrodz2015 Check out how quick this mouse dies. I guess #buddy pump in most of it's venom cause the other two mice two longer to die. The third was bitten twice before it died. #terrerium #rattlesnake #buddy #snakesofinstagram #wildcaugh #cutelunch #byebyemouse 7h
