[RC] Big Snake - Bruce Weary DC

Hi D'Arcy--

You may have a point there, and you are clearly more compassionate toward rattlesnakes than I am. However, there is no shortage of them here, in fact there are trails I won't ride or hike in the depth of summer due to their numbers. Because they are deadly, to humans and horses alike, I think our first reaction in coming across one is one of fight or flight. I'm betting the old man in the picture's first thought wasn't: "Boy, the herpetologists are going to have a heyday with this one!" Probably, he was thinking, "Where in the hell is my shovel!!!!!!!!" The snake was heard as saying, "I may not be the baddest dude in the whole desert, but I'm in the top two. And my Daddy is gettin' old." :> Dr Q
