When you let the neighborhood tribe bring you animals ----
you sometimes get rattlesnakes....
This picture was taken this week out on the Cold War reservation.
When all the tribe was younger they would bring me all sorts of critters and we'd set up habitats for them. I've had escaped frogs hopping down my hallway at 3am, a hatching of preying mantis in the car and a baby rattlesnake - 'do you know what kind of snake this is?' YES, let's take it back to an open range area VERY carefully.
