Arizona Rattlesnake Mating Ritual


Recommended Posts

We were only about 25-feet away from them, and they knew we were there! It was just breathtaking to watch. :thumbsupanim - Terry

WOW.

That is cool.

How close were you that you didn't disturb them. This kinda makes you the peeping Tom of the smake world :-)

Actually, both snakes are male, and the "dance" is actually combat of sorts. They don't really bite each other, rather just hold on and "wrestle" until the smaller, weaker one gives up and slides off. The female they were competing for was somewhere VERY close by. The whole thing lasted about four minutes, and even though I quit almost 25-years ago, yes, I really did want a cigarette! :inocent: Cheers! - Terry
