First of all those snakes are not "rare" PALEEZE, its called cryptic coloration for a reason folks (I have walked right past them before without seeing them because they tend not to rattle, even when pissed off). Remember, they used to call Gila Monsters rare, remember?????

Secondly, it is gross that people are tearing that range up to find them, and others, all for a buck, definitely a reflection of our economic times...I consider those folks to be bottom feeders.

3rdly, they do occur in CA. IF, and only IF, you know where to look and trust me when I say I wont ever tell a soul where that place is!
And dont presume its near the other locale, cause it is not LOL!!!! More than 50 miles away.

I seriously doubt that they will dissapear, too much territory to cover, people from as far away as Sweden know about these animals and where to look for them,and the snakes still persist in numbers. The saving grace is these snakes are not easy to find, even in the best of conditions (and with dumbasses giving you GPS coordinates). Not because they are rare but because they are more secretive IMO, and they cover an immense mountain range that is VERY HARD to endure and explore. Most people that go there to hunt for them stay by the road which is fine with me because the prettiest ones to photograph are deep in the mountains and you have to hike through some very hard country to get to them.
