Submitted by Mike Broderick...



This is the same speckled rattlesnake that I misidentified as a pygmy rattlesnake the other day. But instead of a glamor (no "U", sorry Ken and Danny!) shot, this one shows the venemous predator inside.

Dumb luck that his jaws barely fit inside my frame horizontally. I can't believe I got this shot. He was "yawning", not striking. Even so......Brrrr.....

Still behind glass. Thank goodness.
