I think the pics are perhaps a bit washed out/overexposed, but even if not the case, I would still say it falls in the normal range for Ca. Scutes area really amazingly variable across their range and even at the same locale. The rattle is probably washed out looking along with the pics, but another thing that happens with snakes in captivity for any lenght of time is that the new segments can become much more transparent with a diet of frozen mice. The segements often become "higher" and more rounded looking on a frozen mouse diet.
