Timber Rattlesnake

Crotalus horridus


Tan or yellowish-tan with dark brown markings appear as bands along the back that are rounded toward the head and change to more of a V shape near the tail. Often a dark line extends from the eye along the angle of the jaw, and there is a rust-colored stripe down the back. The tail is black with a prominent rattle at the end.


Rocky wooded hillsides and mature forests


Spotted crossing the highway near campsites at Johnsons Shut-In's State Park.
