Western Diamondback Rattlesnake spotted hiding under some brush, between rocks, along a dry riverbed. This snake was spotted just after sunset on the White Sands Missile Range, New Mexico.
This is my fourth rattlesnake spotting, and first outside of Oklahoma! 3/4 have been Western Diamondback Rattlesnakes, so I assume they are the most common species in this part of the country.
