WARNING; HANDLING VENOMOUS SNAKE'S IS DANGEROUS!!!

Conclusion;

I hope what I've posted here helps people understand just alittle about what took place before I took a pic with my rattler's. What I've posted is not meant as a "how to tame a rattlesnake" guide but to show the time,effort,patience and not to mention love for the animal that this process take's.
I live in the country where there's a lot of hunting around my community and the over all consensus is rattlesnakes should all be killed on site. I've known people to go out of their way to kill a rattlesnake! This is because like me this is what they were taught all their lives, I'm doing my best to change that mindset but it's tuff! Some may wonder why would I put myself at risk, one reason is where I live in S.C the Eastern Diamondback is slowly disappearing. This snake is very special
1. It's the largest rattlesnake species in the world.
2. It's the most venomous snake in the U.S
3. It's only native to 7 states in the U.S and no place else in the world!
The 7 states are N.C, S.C, GA, FLA, ALA, MISS, LA. ( It's believed that their already extinct in LA.)
4. The Eastern Diamondback is listed in the Guinness book of world records as the heaviest venomous snake.
I hope to maybe in some way get someone to see that they aren't MONSTER'S and stop this killing on site, if one Eastern Diamondback is saved because of what I do then for ME the risk is well worth it. Thank's

Here's a first! Today Temprance and I were able to take a pic together. She's come along way in the past 4 month's! I feel like a father watching his child take their first step's!

I'm compelled to ask, is that a beer or Pepsi can sitting on the rail in the background?

Man that's a mellow snake. She's enjoying that sunshine. Most other keepers just leave their snakes in a cage all day. I think that's very cruel of them and it's nice to see a captive snake get some sunshine and fresh air. A happy snake is a mellow snake. Here's a pic of Ole Nancy Boo Boo. She's gravid at the moment and about ready to pop any day now

She has a great color, what did you breed her with?

I like to take all my snakes out when the weathers nice, plus I get to interact with them better.

She's bred with another high pink male that I have. Both have those nice gold dots on their faces. They are gonna be some pretty babies.

That's always a good feeling and it takes a lot of work and good vibes to get one to start trusting you like that

Yea she was extremely nervous when I first got her, it's taken 4 months of working with her before she started to calm down.

Did you sell that albino cotton mouth you had? That is a beautiful cotton mouth! That's the first albino one I've seen.
