Description

Found on the road with what seemed to be some pretty bad internal injury, but there was only a little blood and a small part of the body was misshapen.

After moving it off the road, it opened its mouth a few times and made some faint rattles. Made for great pictures, but it was rough seeing such an amazing animal dying.

Description

"Seen in the North Loop trail of the Antelope Valley Poppy Reserve.

"The poppies were all burned out. Not enough rain, too much sun. But there were still poppies aplenty in the neighboring hills, so I was still happy with the trip."

Description from Wikipedia

Crotalus is a genus of venomous pit vipers found only in the Americas from southern Canada to northern Argentina. The name is derived from the Greek word krotalon, which means "rattle" or "castanet", and refers to the rattle on the end of the tail which makes this group (genera Crotalus and Sistrurus) so distinctive. 32 species are currently recognized.

No range data available.
