    Lets hope that this is the closest you ever get to this little guys head... other wise you might get bit! Its a Western Diamondback Rattlesnake. About a year and a half old, ~16" long, the head is about the size of a nickel (maybe slightly larger, but not as big as a quarter).

    This is a full frame shot, no cropping. Only sharpened a little and bumped contrast.

    yeah, legal to own just not legal to buy, sell, or trade within AZ border (because it's a native species) I could buy or sell it to anyone outside of AZ though. Then again alot of breeders get off by selling you the aquarium for 300 and you happen to get a snake for free. You can give them away, just can't profit directly from the snake.

    Eastern diamondback. It was the most docile snake ive ever encountered. didn't even rattle when my lens was only a few inches from its head.
