Quehanna Yellow Phase Timber Rattlesnake

Finally got a picture of a yellow phase. I've never seen one this bright of yellow. This was way out in the middle of Quehanna and just like most of the rattlesnakes i've come across, they never rattled! Took a few pictures and left it be. Beautiful, but intimidating creature.










This is the black phase i found two years ago in Wykoff Run Natural Area.


Not only is my short-term memory horrible, but so is my short-term memory.

Nice Pictures. That is a lot of yellow. Looks like it is in great condition and may have just shed.

Re: Quehanna Yellow Phase Timber Rattlesnake

I walked right past a big yellow phase rattler in the southern block of Sproul State SF 2 years ago and it never rattled, never moved.

I didn't even notice it, but my buddy was walking behind me and he saw it.

It was yellow, but not as bright yellow as that one. Great photo.
