Western Diamondback Rattlesnake Coiled

Photo Copyright Ed Bustya
On mild days, Western Diamondbacks can be found coiled in the shade of bushes or cactus. They usually remain motionless when encountered, probably to avoid detection, but will rattle a warning and move into a striking position if they sense danger to themselves. This rattler was photographed near Perry Mesa (near Sunset Point).
