Arizona Rattle Snake Description and Characteristics

Most rattlesnakes have a flattened, triangular shaped head with a heat sensing pit located between the nostril and eye on each side that is used to locate and trail prey. Different species of rattlesnakes can be of different lengths, with the western diamondback growing up to six feet in length.

The loosely attached horny rings, or rattles, at the tip of the tail are the source of the rattle sound. A baby rattle snake is born with a pre-button on the end of its tail and only after the first month at about two weeks does it have a button.
