I spent several weeks in Wenatchee National Forest, which is in western Washington, a few years back. I saw/heard an enormous number of rattlesnakes. Most of the time they were on the trail and went away before anyone got within 20 feet or so. The rattling sound is a little creepy, but I didn't see anyone get bitten. Some googling seems to indicate that there is no such thing as a non-venomous rattlesnake.

There's no reason to be afraid of them as long as you keep an eye out and don't step on them or let them into your tent, but they are there.


All rattlesnakes are pit vipers, and all pit vipers are venomous, along with their regular viper relatives.

That you probably buy rodents to feed to it.

Hopefully you keep that thing cuddled next to you or live someplace where it will die a quick death if it ever gets loose - unless you live someplace where it belongs (like Burma).

Rabbits. And it does get cold here in fall and winter, which is why he has a whole bedroom to himself that's heated. And unlike some idiots, I'm never letting him loose. He's a beautiful, gentle snake, and I loves him lots.

Coral snakes are pretty calm little buggers. I remembered the rhyme wrong when I was little, and picked one up at school and carried it to the woods to let it go. Wasn't aggressive at all. Asked a teacher about the rhyme afterwards, whoops!

Why was a snake hiking? Was it wearing North Face or MEC?

alaric3: Red on Yellow Kill a Fellow. Red on Black Poison Lack.

Red touches yellow, you're a dead fellow
Red touches black, you're all right Jack

Now there's three ways I've heard it.


Here's a fourth. Red on Yellow Kill a Fellow. Red on Black friendly Jack.

I didn't make that up on the spot, that actually is how I first learned it when I was a small pup watching an educational slideshow in my local library.

I always learned it as "red on black, venom lack." Does that count as another version?
