Notes:
This neonate was found basking at the entrance of a hole, and quickly retreated upon approach. Over the next hour and a half, this same neonate was observed in the same location on 2 other occasions as I passed by on the way to/from my vehicle. This individual could not have been more than a few days old, as it only had the very first segment of its rattle. A search of the surrounding area did not produce any other individuals.
