Earlier I sent around this pic of a fat rattler encountered by one of my field survey crews near Rawlins, Wyoming last week. It came just at the time that Chas was reviewing a book written by a rattlesnake bite survivor and reflecting on his own close encounter with one a couple of years ago.

Don't worry, no archaeologists were harmed during the taking of this photo.

Lots of rattlers on the web right now- check out Camera Trap Codger. I can't decide which snake is prettier.

I need to find an appropriate area of skin to put one of these.

I'll post a pic later of me in my 30's with one-- a favorite snake of mine.
