A pair of desert rattlesnakes

These are my captives. The blue/white one is a speckled rattlesnake and the brown is a Sonoran sidewinder. They share a cage together.

Nice photo, but how'd you get them to strike the same pose?

Verbal commands don't work, so we communicate with hand signals. :lol:

Lucky you – because they're pit vipers – you can even communicate with then in total darkness.

Any commands other than "Rattle and Hum" ...I mean strike, they probably don't hum?

Nice photo.
