We've designed this web site to provide useful educational materials for entertainment and basic field experience purposes. The section, First Aid for Snake Bite , is a brief outline of logical steps to consider when applying first aid treatment to a poisonous snake bite and is designed for rapid decision making based upon some pre-planning and awareness of the likely course of a venomous wound. No medical claims are made and sound judgment is strongly encouraged.

4. Snake Envenomations, Mojave Rattle by Sean P Bush
Background: Envenomation by some rattlesnakes, such as the Mohave rattlesnake (formerly Mojave rattlesnake) (Crotalus scutulatus), may cause a different clinical presentation than that generally encountered after most rattlesnake bites. In addition, other species, such as the Southern Pacific rattlesnake Crotalus oreganus helleri, (formerly Crotalus viridis helleri), may cause signs and symptoms consistent with typical rattlesnake envenomation combined with signs and symptoms similar to Mohave rattlesnake envenomation.
5. Snake Envenomations, Rattle by Sean P Bush, M
Background: Rattlesnakes are pit vipers and include the genera Crotalus and Sistrurus. Pit vipers may be identified by a heat-sensing pit anteroinferior to the eye. Rattlesnakes may be identified in all but one species by a rattle at the tip of the tail. Rattlesnakes are indigenous from North America to South America.

7. Rattlesnake Man Ken Childers - pics
This website is for educational and conservation purposes and to share with you the beauty of the wild. There is nothing more relaxing to me than being in the absolute middle of nowhere looking for rattlesnakes. We only use "CATCH & RELEASE" when hunting snakes. They are hard enough to find without thinning the population out any further. Rattlesnakes do not hunt people nor do they want to bite them.

The Rattlesnake is one of the most well-known yet one of the most un-known species.
You can find an alphabetical listing of rattlesnake species here. Of the major changes are those suppressing the Canebrake Rattlesnake subspecies Crotalus h. atricaudatus into the Timber Rattlesnake (Crotalus horridus). The viridis group has undergone a great revision with definition of two major clades: the eastern clade (Crotalus viridis, Crotalus v. nuntius) and the western clade (Crotalus o. abyssus, Crotalus o. caliginus, Crotalus o. cerberus, Crotalus o. concolor, Crotalus o. helleri, Crotalus o. lutosus, Crotalus o. oreganus).
