Mom was right....as usual!


Western Pygmy Rattlesnake.......venomous, by the way....known around here as a ground rattler....yep, that's it. I looked it up and the pictures on the internet are closer than any other snake. I bet my brother won't be laughing so much now!!! It wasn't nearly as big as the one in the picture, so I'm thinking youngster with no rattles. None of them get very big.....duh, pygmy!!

The only thing keeping me sane right now is the knowledge that they hibernate for winter. I just don't want them hibernating in my garage!!!
