Notes:
2 snakes both found under the same coverboard (photos 1 and 2 are the first individual; photos 3 and 4 are the second indiviudal). Were both reasonably active and both assumed the rattlesnake position with S-shaped strike pose and vibrating tail. Neither ever hissed or striked at me. Instead, both let out musky smells and deficated in defense. The temperature under the board was 67.2 degrees F and the humidity was 88.9% RH.
