One of the most dangerous snakes in the southwest, the Western Diamondback is responsible for the majority of snakebite fatalities in northern Mexico. While it may be dangerous, it is a beautiful snake and is necessary for controlling rodent populations. It is easily recognized by its diamond-shaped markings running down its spine.
