I'm going to venture a guess that this is a protected timber rattler instead of the commonly seen here western diamondback because it did not rear up or make any movement; it did not rattle; the markings are much blacker than what I usually see on rattlers here; it was seen in grass but very close to woods edge. Would appreciate any input from herp lovers out there.
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.
