Max Wilson, Region III Volunteer Coordinator with the Arizona Game and Fish Department, presented a power point demonstration on venomous creatures at Kingman Route 66 Rotary Club’s April 7 meeting. He noted rattlesnakes are identified by rattles in their tail and triangular spade-shaped heads. Rattlesnakes are active in the Kingman area between March and October. Rattlesnakes can strike up to two-thirds of their body length and can swim.
