I've seen a couple around here in Blackwater state forest, but I haven't been able to get a picture. Great job on the picture, thanks for sharing

Very nice Kristie! Since you know the identity of your organism (from your use of its common name, eastern diamondback rattlesnake), please go ahead and fill in the scientific name field. In this case the scientific name is Crotalus adamanteus. In terms of the Project Noah database, this will make your spotting a complete record, and allow groups and individuals to find your spotting, and use the data it provides. It also takes the spotting off the "unidentified" list. If you are interested in learning how species are named and why this is important, see Project Noah's blog entry http://blog.projectnoah.org/post/2870249... Thanks!
