Western Rattlesnake

Western Rattlesnake

A habitat generalist and widely distributed over the western U.S., it is represented in Nevada by the sub-species know as the Great Basin Rattlesnake. Its coloration is variable, but primarily browns and grays. Facial stripes can be faint to pronounced. With exception to localized overlap with the other rattlesnakes of southern Nevada, the Great Basin Rattlesnake is the only one inhabiting the northern two-thirds of the state.
