I found this large rattler in the middle of the road that led through the park, it was relocated by park staff to a less people-dense area shortly afterwards(hence the trash bin). Specimen was between roughly 3-4.5 ft and appeared to be female due to tail size. Rattle had a decent collection of segments.
This is the same animal I posted for 2015-01-25, relocated from a ranch building.
Caught in a building on a horse ranch; I was asked to relocate it. In the past, this ranch would kill any snakes they caught.
Less than 25cm long, with two buttons on rattle.
A beautiful melanistic Crotalus oreganus helleri, who had just envenomated (next image)

I was riding along a heavy traffic trail at the bottom of the park and saw this juvenile SPR in the middle of the trail. I moved it along off the trail so it wouldn't get stepped on, run over, or picked up by a kid. Beautiful little thing!
