I have a feeling that this is old news, but here goes:

When I was a kid, many people (not scientists, just people I thought were "in the know" seemed to think that there was a difference between Timber Rattlesnakes and Canebrake Rattlesnakes.

As I got older, the "official" opinion seemed to be that there was no difference between the two; both were Crotalus horridus, a species that happened to have several color variations, hence the confusion.

Now I've heard that Timbers and Canebrakes are, actually and in fact, now considered separate species. Is this true?

Thanks.
