    Re: Western diamondback pics.

    Well put Rob! Don't hesitate to post pics OP! They were cool to look at and I still think you did a great thing. I hope that poor snake recovered from all the stress you caused. Just make sure next time you are going through old photos you have a classifications book next to you so this NEVER HAPPENS AGAIN! Lol!

    Western diamondback pics.

    You all need to stop getting up tight.

    I never had a go, I simply stated next time he comes across a rattler he shouldn't try to pin it. For HIS safety, a friend of mine got bitten while pinning an atrox for medication and he's been doing it for 7 years. But if you don't want to take that advice onboard, that's your prerogative.

    Maybe you should give that advice to your friend! Hope he is ok. I have no idea what an atrox is either. Neither does Siri so it must not be a real species of anything. Is there a common name you can use for us slow folks.

    Your advice is solid - in this case there was no need to pin the snake.

    Yep, of Siri does not know what it is, it must not exist.

    Do you always act like a child?

    It happens even to the best, like George Van Horn: http://youtu.be/_Gmlc1-d3QQ
    Who may I add, has pinned 1000's of venomous snakes.

    I'm not giving the OP advice, for me to sound as if I'm knowledgeable. I'm giving him advice, so that next time he doesn't put himself in a dangerous situation, as he's already admitted he is not experienced with venomous snakes.

    my response was meant to be light hearted, notice the Siri reference! It was in reply to don't be uptight! Sorry if you failed to catch the humor in it.
