While out looking for hogs I crossed paths with this massive Diamondback, probably one of the biggest I've seen to date

My female #adamanteus Has an interesting head pattern, much more shy than the male is. #crotalusadamanteus #easterndiamondback #diamondbackrattlesnake #crotalus #captivebred #savethebuzztails
Love the color on this guy. A nice speck we found a few years back on a NAFHA trip. Sorry for the bad quality, I had to grab this photo out of a pretty old album which had pictures I took with my old camera. #californiaherps #herps #herping #ca #california #photography #speck #rattlesnake #snake #snakes #speckledrattlesnake #crotalus #nafha

Part 2 of the little female finishing her meal. I had the phone on the ground about 6” from her. Towards the end I was getting uncomfortable with how close she was to my hand holding up the phone so I cut it short. Once it’s just a tail left they can certainly strike again and I didn’t want to end the night badly!!

Just relocated this juvenile rattler from disturbing the gardeners at our office.

So a few people asked for video of me feeding a wild Diamondback a mouse. I fed 5 animals tonight and this guy really didn’t need it but I had an extra so I gave it to him. The other 4 were much thinner females. This was the only video I could condensed into a minute. The best one was a female that crawled over to me to take the mouse but it’s a longer video.

Sidewinder rattlesnake (Crotalus cerastes). I really like the way this shot turned out. I am definitely going to play around with directional lighting more in the near future!

Portrait of the beautiful girl from Saturday. Truly a magnificent animal and I'm glad we were the first humans to come across her that day, since seemingly the whole population of humans in that area think they're not worthy of existing. #theonlygoodsnakeisalivesnake #easterndiamondbackrattlesnake #Crotalusadamanteus #Crotalus #NikonD810 #TeamNikon #Sigma105mm #snakesofig #snakesofinstagram #snakesofFlorida #Floridasnakes #Floridawildlife #wildlifeofflorida #showsrespectnotfear #Florida

Already missing the field herping weather. Here’s one we came across earlier this year. #crotalus #crotalusmolossus #rattlesnake #snake #herping #fieldherping #arizona #blacktailrattlesnake
Pretty incredible how beautiful and perfect rattles like this one on a Banded Rock Rattlesnake (Crotalus lepidus klauberi) can be. I saw this guy a few times over the course of a few weeks and am hoping he’s okay. Apparently poachers have hit some areas hard in the recent months. This species is not legal for take in Southern Arizona where this individual was found. Personally nothing matches being able to see creatures like this in the wild and to me it’s a real shame that some people have a clear lacking of respect for these animals and their habitats. #conservation #arizonaherps #skyislands #screwpoachers #crotalus

Since I haven't uploaded and edited any photos from the weekend yet, here's a cell phone shot of the eastern diamondback rattlesnake from Saturday that @saundersdrukkerherping and I came across. #theonlygoodsnakeisalivesnake #easterndiamondbackrattlesnake #easterndiamondback #rattlesnake #Crotalusadamanteus #Crotalus #snakesofinstagram #snakesofFlorida #Floridasnakes #floridaherping #herpingflorida #Floridawildlife #Florida #TeamSamsung #Note8
It's been a fun few weeks tracking Prairie Rattlesnakes with @adaptationenvironmental. All the snakes have moved into areas that are potentially den sites. #yourshotphotographer #fieldherping #crotalusviridis #crotalus #prairierattlesnake #rattlesnake #conservation #reptile #snake #withmytamron 90mm macro #nikonnofilter
I decided to take a hike yesterday and see if I could find old Moe the skinny female Mojave that I was trying to fatten up a bit before winter. No sign of her or the dbacks that usually sit close by but this skinny male was out about a half mile away. I startled him when I walked by and he sat straight up and gave a pretty weak rattle. He’s just about as thin as she was but he’s full of air in this shot. I didn’t have any mice with me this time so I looked around for a wild rodent or larger lizard with no success. The lack of rain has affected some of these guys significantly!!!

An #ArizonaBlackRattlesnake I photographed a while ago but failed to post photos of. I've said it before and I'll say it again - in my eyes, these are some of the most photogenic rattlesnakes. They appear to be purely black until you see them in the sunlight (or camera flash), which causes their scales to glisten with beautiful greens, blues, golds, and rusty browns.

Crotalus mitchellii, 
2 hours after surviving the 17 hour flying epic I spotted this beauty at a place that Tim made me drive to..

A nice Black Tail from a few nights ago with my buddy Steve and his son @snakes.jtippett ! I've seen hundreds of these over the last few years and this is definitely one of the prettiest ones I've seen.

Tiger Rattlesnake found on the same road as the western diamondback, sidewinder and blacktailed rattlesnake.
This one was a bit bigger as the one we found.

Here is a close-up of the face of a western diamond-backed rattlesnake. You can clearly see the vertical pupil, the nostril, and the heat-sensing pit that sits below the nostril.

Red diamond rattlesnake profile. The majority of my photos of this species are pretty boring. Just some big red coils buried in the grass concealed by sticks. In those cases I just snap a voucher photo and move on. Once in a while I’ll find one on the move between spots and usually they notice me first. They are very alert animals and will typically get defensive for a few minutes and then calm down and move on. This give me a brief window to see the other side of these normally mellow snakes and get some somewhat more dramatic pictures. Have a great weekend!!

This is one of the 3 Western Diamondbacks that I saw for the first time of my life..

This one was yellow.

As the dust settled #WhatTheFactFriday emerged to form a new, stronger, smarter society.
Fact - Some snakes have venom...no surprise there.  But did you know that the same species of snake can have two totally different venoms!?😱 I know!  Super crazy.
A few years ago National Geographic reported that the Southern Pacific rattlesnake found here in California can have 2 different venoms when found at 2 different locations.  In one location these snakes contain a hemotoxin that destroys blood cells that can cause major bleeding.  While the same snake, at a different location, contains a neurotoxin that attacks nerve cells and causes paralysis in the victim.
A lead researcher/scientist from the University of Queensland was quoted as saying, “It’s the most complex variation that I’ve ever seen especially within such a geographically short distance.”
Yay natural selection!
A shout out to @tonyiwane for showing me the article.
