A few old photos of a Ridge-nosed Rattlesnake from the Sierra de los Ajos in Sonora, Mexico.

Also figuring out this multiple photo post thing.

Arizona Ridge-nosed Rattlesnake (Crotalus willardi willardi) - one of the last photos of this species from last year's expedition. This is one of my favourite species of all snakes around the world! They live in beautiful habitat - oak woodlands high in the mountains:)

Crotalus willardi in an amapola field. This photo that I took in Chihuahua, shows in its own way one of the realities of the Mexican countryside in more than one aspect; on one hand the lack of opportunities has pushed many people to work in these “flowered” fields and to outsiders it may be still considered a taboo issue, however, I’ve been living in the mountains for the past couple years, and working with local contacts has helped me understand and see all these things under a different light, it has taught me about conservation, and about the local political/economic situation and about why people have to do this. Another aspect is that people who’s working in the field will undoubtedly come across snakes and other fauna, making encounters and in this case photos like this one possible, sadly these encounters usually end up badly for the snakes, so I also have tried to teach some of the locals about snakes and about how they’re not the menace some think. Fortunately in this case, it was a happy ending for everyone.

The Apache Native Americans adopted their war paint from the striking white markings on the faces of Arizona ridge-nosed rattlesnakes (Crotalus w. willardi). There is no rattlesnake (or any other snake) that I love more than these little montane crotalids. @geo_mander spotted this gem after a morning full of finding banded rock rattlesnakes (Crotalus lepidus klauberi). #arizonaridgenosedrattlesnake #ridgenosedrattlesnake #crote #crotalus #crotalid #crotaluswillardiwillardi #crotaluswillardi #willardi #arizona #arizonaherps #rattlesnake #skyislands #ridgenose #pitviper #viper #fieldherping #herping #herpingarizona #venomous #venomoussnake #snake

Close up of a #ridgenosedrattlesnake from last year. This was our fist snake in AZ on that trip. Unfortunately I Wasn’t able to make it out to the sky islands this year so I’ll have to make a few trips next year! #azherps #crotalus #willardi #crotaluswillardi #naturalbeauty

Arizona ridge-nosed rattlesnake (crotalus willardi willardi), the first snake of a productive outing with @tradamson_photography and @specksnleps the other day. In my opinion, these are the coolest of the little montane rattlesnakes of southeast Arizona.

A great looking Arizona Ridge-nosed Rattlesnake that we found yesterday at around 6000’ of elevation. Designated as the official state reptile of Arizona, These guys are one of the handful of montane species of rattlesnake here and are found in the sky islands generally between 4000’ and 8000’ of elevation. #crotalus #willardi #crotaluswillardi

A young Arizona ridge-nosed rattlesnake (Crotalus willardi) I spotted basking in a small rock pile along a canyon in southern Arizona with some spider webs on his face. All of the montane rattlesnake species in the southwestern US generally tend to be smaller than their lower elevation counterparts, but ridge-nosed rattlesnakes are among some of the smallest. That along with their coloration and pattern can make them hard to spot in the leaf litter, so I was super excited to have the opportunity to see one of these in the wild.

The Arizona Ridge-nosed Rattlesnake (Crotalus willardi willardi)

This stunning, montane species only occurs at between 4000 and 9000 feet in the mountains of Southern Arizona and Northern Mexico.
Seeing as this unique rattlesnake is the Arizona State Reptile, it simply wouldn’t have been right to visit the state without seeing one.
This individual was found on a beautiful morning down in the ‘sky islands’ after bumping into a great group of US herpers also targeting the species!

Switching back to my AZ trip with @dallasjolly from what feels like months ago but was really just late July...I took him to a pretty reliable spot for these Arizona ridgenosed rattlesnakes and not joking, 5 minutes in and 20 feet from the car this beauty was on the crawl and buzzed us. It settled up against a tree long enough to get some photos of it. Of course we hiked for about 2.5 hours after this and didn’t see another snake but that is what is expected after finding your target so quickly.

This is a Ridge-nosed Rattlesnake. Its territory in Arizona is rather modest, consequently, they're not easy to find. Unless of course, you have the eyesight of a mantis shrimp and the tracking skills of a African wild dog. Who is the super human who found this snake, you ask? My buddy @Paul.the.Explorer, of course. Enjoy -- this snake is rare.

Was without cell service for the last couple days in AZ, so here's the last edit I made. This is Saturday's action. Hiking was good and we found a nice Arizona Ridge-nosed Rattlesnake while out, but then the temps dropped and the rain hit. So it was basically 1500 spadefoots toads (like this one) and a little checkered gartersnake that was out in the wet road.

I will never not enjoy watching a snake eat. It is such a fascinating process. Here is a video of our ridge nosed rattlesnake eating. Yes I know he ate the mouse backwards.
