We heard this snake while we were on the road, in woods, twenty feet away. It was rattling continuously which we had never heard before at Sobrante Ridge. We do not know why it was warning with a rattle. It kept rattling with only short breaks for over 30 minutes. I walked home to get a camera with flash and 200 mm lens and located the snake by following the direction of the rattle sound. I had a 200 mm lens.

First occurrence of species detection at St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge. Fungal species presence upon Crotalus adamanteus determined by official investigation through USGS. Snake was observed along trail, and a photograph was sent to me. I noted the malform head, and determined the snake was potentially innoculated with SFD. Rehab was attempted by local wildlife facility, but snake expired two days later.

Rattlesnake just past the junction of Weir Canyon Trail and Deer Trail. Didn't see it until we walked within 10 feet. Didn't rattle at us. Stayed there for 3 minutes before moving West.
Red Diamond Rattlesnake I believe.
The two shots of it coiled are of it leaving, the rest are in chronological order from 9:19-9:24am.

Overcast weather. Snake blended in well.
