Native to the Americas, Rattlesnakes are a group of venomous snakes that live in a wide variety of habitats, preying on small birds and rodents. The majority of the Rattlesnakes live in the Southwest of the U.S.A. and Mexico. These snakes receive their name from the rattle located at the end of their tail. This feature makes a loud rattling noise when vibrated, used to help the snake deter predators or as a warning to passer-byers.
The skin of the Rattlesnake is comprised of overlapping scales which cover the entire body, providing the animal protection from any physical trauma and dehydration. The scales of the Rattlesnake are intricately patterned with subtle earth tone colors resembling its surrounding environment to help camouflage them from their predators.
