WOW, with all the walking though the desert for the last 20 years I have been lucky and never came upon a snake while I have been surveying. Now I get atleast one a month in our pool. Never swim without checking the pool first.

Been there, seen that. Looks like they found a den?

Those are some mature snakes in that pile. The only thing that I can compare that to is the scene from Raiders of the Lost Ark, when Indy and his Egyptian buddy are in the tomb getting the ark.

Looks like a bunch of pairs of nice boots could be in there.

My luck would have been to stake out a property corner right in the middle of that orgy.
Reminds me of a time when I was on the rod hunting down a property corner. I was getting close and there was a great big ole king snake sunning in the road. School was letting out so I figured I’d do him a favor and get him out of the road. He didn’t like it at all but he eased on off the road. I had the gunner take a shot on me for distance and line. The call came back like 5′ in and 7′ right. I found the pin just fine. Guess who was curled up around it!!! When I tried to shoe him away the 2nd time he wasn’t having any of that. Man could he hit the rod with a vengance.

Nice sized Timber Rattler.

Yea, both of those have been making the rounds for a few years.

I’ve seen pairs of great basin rattlers several times in late summer. Always been told that if you see one that time of year beware that there is probably another nearby.
I’ve never seen a den of rattle snakes.
If they are in my territory (on or near my property) the only good snake is a dead snake. Took out a big one near my farm shop late last spring.
