I saw two Western Diamondback rattlesnakes so far this year.  The first snake (observed April 9th) is hard to see as it blends in with the creosote bush it was under.

This snake was full grown, a good four feet long.

The black and white section of the tail is the easiest part of the snake to see.

Today I saw a much smaller rattlesnake slowly crossing the road.

Much easier to see!

I didn't hear any rattling.
