Thanks for the Warning

Husband and dog had already walked by this rattlesnake shortly before 6 a.m. Wednesday when Gloria Herring approached and said she heard something akin to the sound of running water.

"I walked back and noticed the snake in a striking pose," Herring wrote. Then she went inside for the camera. By the time she returned the snake, about 30 inches long, had moved up onto the walk by the front door.

"We walk every morning in the desert and are quite vigilant looking for snakes," Herring wrote. "He blended in quite well by the house and there was low light. I'm glad he gave us a warning."

@mr. parker. That must be the same snake I caught with my snake lasso and put in your house. Thank you for your very useful info.

I understand that if the white stripes near the rattle are wider than the black, it's a Mojave green.

@AND...?: I think they captured it and put it in a 5 gallon can with a locking lid and then set it free in your driveway.

Just wondering about the general area of town this was in. North end? Golden Valley? Hualapai area? RSF?

The best way to deal with an MG is to administer a fatal dose of shovel poisoning.
Or, if you live outside the city limits, lead poisoning, shotgun style.

That's true, I've seen Red MG's, Black MG's, White MG's and even a silver one. Like most cars MG's come in all different colors.

Having worked outside in the desert for 30 years, I can tell you that most rattlers would just as soon avoid you as you them. Fair warning though. Those little green monsters don't always rattle before they strike. Always be aware of the type of rattler your dealing with. Mohave Greens have a nasty disposition and can be very aggressive.
I think there are 11 or so different rattlers in our beautiful desert and you can get great info. about them from the BLM office on Hualapai Mtn. Rd. Those folks are always friendly and very helpful. Plus, you can see a few up close in their live cages.
