Timber rattlesnake

Crotalus horridus


This rattlesnake has a golden brown body with dark crossbands. Most southern forms have a reddish-orange stripe that runs down the back. This snake has keeled scales, a vertical pupil (not round), and an obvious heat-sensing pit between the eye and nostril.


Wooded areas, rocky outcrops, and swampy marshlands.
