Snake was removed from residential yard and released nearby.
Found this little booger at Papago Park the other day. I've spent many hours in the park and had never seen or heard of anyone seeing a rattler there. Very very beautiful animal, seemed healthy and did not show any signs of aggression.

Crotalus atrox, the western diamondback rattlesnake, is a venomous rattlesnake species found in the United States and Mexico. It is likely responsible for the majority of snakebite fatalities in northern Mexico and the second-greatest number in the USA after C. adamanteus. No subspecies is currently recognized.
