Mojave Rattler / Musician???

Found this little critter on the patio of the Legion last night when I was leaving. My bar tender walked right past it. Fortunately it had cooled off a good bit and the snake was real sluggish so that probably saved her from being bitten. It is a Mojave rattler (The deadliest snake in the US) I thought the threat of rattlesnakes was over after all the cold weather, but it was an unusually warm day here yesterday so I guess it ventured out to find a meal.

Got a very good deal on this guitar from one of the legion customers. It had a broken string, but Pat O'Bryan turned me on to a new set so its good to go. I'll need to get a tuner though. This will make about the 3rd guitar I've owned over the years and about the 5th time I've tried to learn how to play one. I HOPE I have better luck this time!

  3. OMG!!! Thank goodness she was not bitten! Was it Melinda?

    That is one of the things I fear most about my future move to Terlingua...these awful critters :(

    How did you kill it? Because you did send it to snake heaven didn't you?

  5. Nice pet to have around. Keeps the rodent population down and unwanted visitors away.

  10. Bigfoot, I'd call it Dead now. I turned it loose in the wild last night while the temp was 32 degrees and dropping. I doubt it could survive long since there wasn't any holes of rocks to crawl in to or under.
