Would love to try this sometime. I see plenty of rattlers but catching them just doesn't seem like something I want to depend on YouTube training for! Sort of like fly fishing, best to have a mentor, only in this case the consequences of ignorance are much more serious.
The tail is completely black with a rattle. The head is large, flat and triangular, with two thermal-sensitive pits between the eyes and the nostrils. The timberrattlesnake’s head color has two distinct colorphases. The black phase has a completely black head with black eyes, and the yellow phase has a yellow head and yellow eyes.

Best pic I have. Was about a 3 1/2 footer. Looked like a male. Didn’t tube him. More of a brown color. Dark head. Yellow eyes. Hard to tell from the pic. Trying to get more from my buddy. We were trying a new camera out.
