What kind of Rattlesnake?

Hello all,
One my friends and I were hiking in the Green Swamp yesterday and we came up on this beautiful little rattlesnake laying on the hiking path. I'm curious as to whether it is a pygmy rattler or some other kind of rattlesnake. Here is the link to the video.

Looks kind of like a pygmy to me, how long was it?

It is a pygmy rattler. I am going to say Dusky.

Wish we had more venomous to see up here in PA. Rattlesnakes are by far my favorite venomous snake but I dont have enough experience to own them or I would have twice as many of them as I do retics
