    Very nice. I have heard those lil buggers are aggressive. i have only seen 1 venomous herp in the wild, and that was a Pacific Rattler, uh...C.helleri i think.

    They let you buy rattlesnakes? You have to sign any papers because they are venomous? Do you own one GEORGE-CP?

    Many places sell venomous herps. Basically you need a permit and other papers as well be over 18 (?). Some go for pretty cheap, as i sometimes see copperheads at gherp.com for like $15. Just a warning, how small they are, they can kill!

    Looks like an Eastern or Western D-Back. I have trouble with IDing "hot" herps.
