twilight


This snake was pretty big. I was trying to get a real close up, but he got scared and started moving really fast, and he went under a rock. The next day we saw another snake just like him, but a little smaller. After I touched his scales he really moved fast. This is the second time I've featured snakes on my blog, the first time I didn't dare try and touch the snake even though I was in close enough proximity when I first saw him:

When I made this snake mad, he didn't run and hide, he took the position in the next link:

An interesting rock near the tent.

Prabhu Singh,

And, you are still taking pictures while he is mad! I can see those rattles pretty clearly.

The pictures of the snake in my archives is a rattle snake.
We debated whether or not to pick up the 'colorado' snake because we weren't sure if he might bite or not.
We touched both snakes and instead of turning to try and bite us, they just sped up and got under a rock or in a hole real fast.

Beautiful piece of rock. i guess the colorado has lots of rocks (sedimantary) like these, and big ones, so big that dinosaurs were discovered in them.

And Bhai Prabhu Singh jee...

Belated Birthday wishes coming from a fellow Sikh.
