Looks like 9 rattlers and a button?

DRankin, Nice job! How the heck did you get that before it struck? Those suckers are pretty darn fast! I saw a video of one striking a ballon, popping it, and then striking it a second time before the remnants hit the ground. Do you have many of those in your part of Nevada? We have some dens of Rattlesnakes left here in New Hampshire but, because of their scarcity the state Fish and Game department keeps their whereabouts a secret.
Keep up the good work!
Dave

Dave, It was already dead.... well, mostly dead.

That funny turn the body takes in the picture about 4 inches down from the head is where I whacked it with the shovel and severed the body with only a chunk of skin holding it together.

Not only that, I didn't take the pictures for nearly an hour and it was still rattling weakly and trying to bite!

It's only the second one I have seen on my land in 5 years. One on the front steps, and one on the front porch.

When I buried it about 90 minutes after I "killed" it it was still moving, opening it's mouth and unsheathing it's fangs.

Tenacious? I don't think I want to dig it up and check.

You shoulda ate him. When I got my jungle training back about 35 years ago, I got introduced to the fine art of cooking snakes over a campfire. They're good! Stick some branches with a "Y" on each side of the fire and have a cross stick to make a rotisserie. Skin him, chop off the head, split him open and wrap him around the stick. Baste with a little butter if you have it. Texture is slightly stringy and tastes almost like chicken breast.

A grocery store here (Adams) had frozen rattlesnake a few weeks ago. Nope - couldn't get the wife to entertain the notion of cooking them. Yooper - thanks for the recipe, I read it off to my wife.

Like I said, butter is optional. Actually, the fire was most often optional as well but that doesn't make for a good recipe. Fire also brought some unwelcome visitors (VC by the hundreds).
