Banded Rock Rattlesnake

Crotalus lepidus klauberi
Gloyd 1936
Cochise Co., Arizona. August 11, 2006.

The first klauberi I spotted was on a risky bit of ledge above a steep canyon, and it drew back into a deep crevice as soon as it spotted me. The second was on the move, crawling over a rock pile, and it dived deep into the pile before I could get a hook on it. Thankfully, the third little rock rattler pictured here was crawling across the trail, and an easy snake to detain and photograph.
