"Little Guy", originally uploaded by EcoSnake.

“Little Guy”

is a Great Basin (Western) rattlesnake (Crotalus oreganus lutosus). I had to take him out of his enclosure in order to clean his cage and water dish. Seemed like a good “photo op.” He’s an Idaho native who was captured by an angler in 1997 when he was only about 12 inches long (A real “Little Guy!”). He never should have be taken from the wild, but after I acquired him I decided to keep him to help teach my university workshops. He’s helped with “Rattlesnake Awareness and Outdoor Safety” ever since then, though he’s now just under three feet long and no longer a “Little Guy.”
