Imagine someone working for the state doing pipe maintainence. They'd be in for a little surprise.

Actually the pink fairie(or dilute red fairie as we purists prefer to more correctly call them) habitat is nearly gone in the Florida Keys. Now they only exist in a few captive breeding situations, although some reports of alledged spotting of wild specimans continue to be gathered. The consumption of large amounts of dacquris seem to assist in spotting these wild specimans.

Those rattlesnakes...

are neither E. Diamondbacks, nor Pygmy Rattlers.
Not Florida.

Not seeing the WDBs or Prairies in there. They look to be Hopis... Crotalus viridis nuntius.

No biggie, but that looks like a pile of prarie rattlers.

I know this is an old post, but just had to add...

Once when I was pretty young, maybe 6 or 7 so this would have been about 1977 or, my friend's dad took us to a Rattlesnake Rodeo. I don't remember all that much, but I do remember that there were barrels that had glass or maybe plexiglass on top. These barrels were just chockfull of snakes. Looked just about like that. Later in the day they had this sort of boxing ring set up and men would walk around while other guys would pile rattlers on their arms. Still others were standing around with what I thought were sticks and hoes (maybe hooks?) and shoving any snakes that tried to go over the edge back onto the platform. In retrospect, this was probably one of the least safe things I can imagine taking a child too. I mean, let's annoy hundreds of rattlesnakes and see what happens! Fun for the whole family!
