    What's the big deal? We bring them out at church all the time. As long as you are right with the Lord, they never bite.

    When I was growing up they had a rattlesnake show outside Mineral Wells, TX. Huge pits filled with snakes. Also there used to be a big rattlesnake ranch off 20 somewhere out there. I dont know if it is still there. When I was home a couple months ago I forgot to see if it was there.

    This is where I got my snake fascination from. Lot of controversy about this; but I know over the years it has transformed from a huge snake kill-off to a scientific study, educational tool, tourist attraction and more. The fact that they routinely pull 6 foot+ Western Diamond backs every year shows how resilient they are. When I was going back in the 70's and 80's is was mainly a kill off for the ranchers.

    That looks like a photoshop job. Don't think you would see that many different types of rattlers together.

    Leave my freinds alone...

    That, my fellow Jeepers is a wintering den. In Big Spring Texas every year they hold a rattle snake round up. That's where I learned my love of snakes, especially the rattler. I've stood among piles of rattlers just like and bigger. When they congregate for the winter, to stay warm and conserve energy, there can be litterally hundreds in a den like that. I wish I knew where that was at, I wanna go play! When they first come out of the winter hybernation they are a docile as pussy cats. Here, snakey snakey...

    I did not take the picture. I got them off our geocaching forum.

    What I want to know is, who was the fool that took the picture??? I wouldn't have taken it with a telephoto lens.
