Various shades of brown with large "diamonds" on back. Often referred to as coon tail because of their black and white banded tail right up to the rattle. This coon tail is not diagnostic, as the Mojave rattlesnake also has it.
Found in the Southern US, from Arkansas to California, and down into Mexico. They can be found anywhere from flat coastal plains to rocky hillsides.
Found cruising around in an oak forest at dusk.
