yep, learned this when it happened. they just happen to be doing a class on rattle snake bites when this happened. i ended up being a labrat for them all through the healing process. poloroid pix and 7-8 people crowded around my hand every visit. was pretty interesting honestly. gross for the most part, but interesting.
i was lucky and the little guy only got one tooth in me. was still enough to ruin the first month of snowboarding for me that year though.

i very much appreciate this mindset. thank you
its sad to see how many people kill snakes cause they are scared of or dont like them. and whats funny, its usually people that hate rodents even worse...stupidiots.
We see rattlers on lots of our mt bike rides every year. they like to sprawl out across the singletrack and take a nap. they dont seem to enjoy how they get woke up, lol.
good to hear the scorpion sting was minimal. the one in the pic above is considerably larger than the ones we get around here.
look forward to the other photos
