Some highlites from the field.

Early on observed this male crossing the road, of interested, I moved it off the road in the direction it was heated. Only to have it return to the exact spot I interfered with him and then continue exactly in the direction it was headed.

In situ, this female is the smallest yet from last years crop. What a cutie, got me, I think shes cute.

Shes is SOOOOOOO cute. There is such a huge difference in behavior, the males are bun bites and go nuts, females, cute I tell you.

THis male was found hanging out all day in the area of the nest I found 5 days ago. hmmmmmmmmmmm

These are hatched eggs, possibly from last year. They would discovered right where a bunch of neonates was located last year. Something dug them up. Actually the female above was found about 15 feet from those eggs.

These guys(Mohave rattlesnakes) share the habitat with hogs, also within 25 feet of the known nest is at least 7 of these fellas to keep me on my toes.


I found a grip of these, all females, acting suspiciously like they are preparing to lay eggs. Time will tell.

Remember, this is a study in ethology, none scientific, which means I will wait to confirm our suspicions rather then dig up and disturb normal events. So time will tell.

Anyway, making some progress and having fun. Thanks
