    I am guessing it was a rattle snake, because the head was missing, and the rattle). Unless he had done something against the crime syndicate and they removed his head and tail for identification purposes.

    And it was fresh. The ants hadn't even gotten to it yet.

    Well if you remove the head and the rattle, it pretty much puts an end to their slithering ways.

    Was it one of the "rattleless" rattlesnakes? I hear stories of a genetic mutation causing some such snakes to be incapable of developing rattles.

    This potential rattlesnake had no end, it was removed. So my belief is it had a rattle, and the de-rattler took it home as a trophy.

    The head was connected to the top end of the picture. It looks mangled like it had been shot with some shot type round.

    Your in Utah right? I'm guessing it was a Western Diamondback Rattlesnake. NOT something you want to get bitten by.

    The markings look just like him. Cept mine were kinda dusty, as I may have driven over it when I pulled up to the place to shoot.

    Ya, I will be here for a few more days, then off back home.

    Agreed. With the right seasonings rattlers make a d@mn good meal. Been about 20 years since I last had it. Don't see too many of them in upstate NY.
