Re: Help identifying rattler!!

My grandpa used to keep a fruit-jar full of rattles. He showed me how to "snap" the rattles off the body of the snake.
Do NOT try that or pick up a rattler you think is dead without first totally removing the rattler's head from the body.
I keep an old garden hoe in the back of my pickup for just such a purpose.
As noted above a "dead" rattler can still strike causing severe injury.
