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.
