Prairie rattlesnake raised up WMIn the grand scheme of things not many people like or tolerate snakes, especially venomous ones like this prairie rattlesnake. Even in national parks they have a hard time since anyone with a car and a dislike for them can easily make quick work of them. This one was out doing what snakes do and basking on the road. Fearing that it would either get intentionally or unintentionally run over, we used a long pole to safely move it off the road. At the time it wasn’t too happy about the helping hand but if it knew the possible alternative it might not have been so defensive or made such a rattle!
