Black-tailed Rattlesnake

Turns out it is pretty easy to distinguish a black-tailed rattler from a diamondback. The former has - you guessed it - a completely black tail (no white rings) in front of the rattle. Photos by Carol Tornow taken on 5/3/11 from a safe distance. Seen between bridges 5 and 6. Thanks to the cyclists who alerted us to this beauty.
