Rattlesnakes are active in Arizona, and the Diamondbacks are out for a big win!

Did you hear that? A light rattle, a shake? They tend to blend in with the landscape and can be hard to spot when they aren’t slithering about, but rattlesnakes are at the height of their activity in Arizona and the Apache Junction area. A rattlesnake bite can be deadly for animals and humans. Be mindful when walking around. Keep an ear out for their rattle, a warning that you are getting too close to this native creature. On a lighter note, looking for something exciting? Our Arizona Diamondbacks will be playing for their second World Series title this week. Keep reading this article for more on both.

What does a rattlesnake look like?

According to the Arizona Sonora Desert Museum, “The Western diamondback rattlesnake (Crotalus atrox) is a heavy bodied snake with a triangular shaped head. There are two dark diagonal lines on each side of its face running from the eyes to its jaws. It has dark diamond-shaped patterns along is back. The tail has black and white bands just above the rattles.”

Do rattlesnakes hibernate?
This time of year, rattlesnakes are preparing to hibernate but are still active, hanging around shrubbery and rock-like features. When winter temperatures get too cold, snakes typically go underground or into natural shelters, like rockpiles or mammal burrows, to avoid freezing, says Pinal Central. And while they do tend to hibernate, that doesn’t mean we are free from rattlesnake encounters at any time. It is Arizona, after all.

What to do if you see or hear a rattlesnake?
If you see or hear a rattlesnake, move away from the snake. Providing space and quickly walking away is the best course of action. If a rattlesnake bites you or your pet, get medical attention immediately.
