The Rattlesnake's Road

Species: Eastern Diamond-Backed Rattlesnake (Crotalus adamanteus) | Location: Oliver Wildlife Management Area, Georgia, United States

For herpetologists searching for snakes, there are few better methods than cruising the roads at dusk. This juvenile eastern diamond-backed rattlesnake was keeping warm on the pavement as we approached and remained quite calm for photographs.

About The Photographer

Cropped img 0275

I am a graduate student studying evolutionary biology, specifically in regards to reptiles and amphibians. Although I am pursuing a career in science, my true passion is exploring and documenting the vast diversity of animals in nature. The majority of my free time is spent traveling, taking photographs, and trying to keep my ever-growing vertebrate life-list up to date.
