Late evening with a belly full of cottontail.
DOR Zavala Co. Approximately 6.5 ft. victim of nightly oil field traffic. Interesting observation for Nov 5th at night. This atrox was a real beast! It's a shame the toll the oil field traffic is taking on area wildlife.
This gal had a bad attitude!
Looked to be about five feet in length. Monster head. Looked to be in great shape. Didn't check for parasites... :)
Small Western Diamondback. About two and a half feet long.
Was out during the mid-day, coming out of a field. Had a small lump in it's body. I would bet it was a field mouse.

Immature (15") coiled up, sunning on the east side of my house while I was doing yard work. I caught him and kept him in an aquarium for a week, during which I fed him two baby mice. I then relocated and released him on a private ranch west of Buda, TX.
Baby rattler was found in my yard inside Kyle, TX city limits. He was approximately 15" long, with a head about the size of a quarter. He had a rattle and a button. I captured him and placed him in a reptile appropriate aquarium. Then fed him two baby mice over the course of a week. He was relocated and released alive on a ranch west of Buda, TX.
