    At what time do the snake do not rattle to warn people not to get to close? I have wanted to take a picture of this snake for years.

    I have a fascination with snakes, but I'm visiting Joshua Tree in a couple of months and do NOT know what to look for. The seem to blend in with the dirt, and it freaks me out that they may not rattle. :(

    Great film. I'm visiting Joshua Tree Ntnl Pk next month (April) and hoping to find some snakes, any tips welcomed. Have I more chance driving the roads at night?

    Loved the video B more people need to realize how important these animals are and the roll they play in the ecosystem.(ie Rodent control)

    You Should do a Tutorial on Bow Venom Tipped Arrows… This Would be Great for Defense on a Certain Basis,,,

    I remember the time I was hiking in Waterfall canyon, White Tanks mountains west side of Phoenix. I climbed over a rock and came face to face ( literally 3 feet away) with a mojave green rattler. Didn't rattle, just coiled up and watched me, slowly…backing…away! Wicked cool!

    If you are going by LD50, the Mojave has one of the most potent venoms, far out classing the Eastern diamondback and other large rattlesnakes. The diamondback however can deliver a great amount more venom than the Mojave can. Also, as far as we have found yet, the most potent viperid venom drop for drop in the US belongs to the Tiger rattlesnake. All this is according to LD50 studies, which we all know is mostly academic and has little bearing on the true danger of a bite to a human.

    Yeah most of the time I am photographing them I have to have a friend of mine move around behind me just to get them to rattle or react for the camera.

    they probably dont rattle at you because they dont sense a true danger by your presence.your posture is calm and relaxed and you truly mean them no harm. they puff up and such caus they still dont you to close as wild animals dont like people. i say this in addition to it likely being cold and them wishing to conserve strength after winter sleep.

    I like it when people like you don't kill snakes at first sight

    Snakes are cool. Thumbs up to you for saving them from gitting hit by mean trucks!

  • AtarahDerek 4 years ago

    Mojaves don't necessarily have the most potent venom. It simply works differently from your typical Crotalus hemotoxins. What makes it more dangerous is what it does. Rather than causing hemorrhaging it causes paralysis of the respiratory system, just as a coral snake's venom does. But if I recall correctly eastern diamondbacks have the most potent venom of viperids in America based on LD50 values. You're more likely to survive an untreated Mojave bite than an untreated EDB bite.

    i live in barstow i see a lot of snakes too.

  • tobigforyou 4 years ago

    @tobigforyou But then again….instead of being dinner, it could be the death of you. I always wondered, should I learn how to catch them, just to be a more proficient bushman, or just learn other stuff and never dwell on this subject.
