    Jesus...rode Hawes in November. Never considered running into a rattler. From KC so not exactly in tune with that kind of stuff. What time of year/temps are they out??

    It all depends on air temps. I've seen them active (sluggish) in days temps around 60 degrees. We had an early warm up in January so they are likely finished with hibernation.

    Dec 12 2018 Sonoran north south connector. He was alive and very pissed at my buddy.

    We saw a large one a couple of weeks ago on one of those 70 degree days.

    Good question. I personally don't, mostly because my research has shown they are ineffective. However, you bring up a good point. On the slim chance you do get bit, what is the best protocol? Let's say you are five miles in on a solo ride and get bit, do you try and ride back to the trailhead or call 911 and follow their instructions?

    Snake bite kits don't work, don't bother wasting your money. If you avoid the snakes, they will avoid you. You are more likely to be struck by lightning.

    I carry this one:

    https://www.rei.com/product/407144/s...actor-pump-kit

    I just read the reviews, and one of them says that suction is ineffective and not recommended for snake bites. Here's what another review says:

    Medically speaking there is no way this product could work. The second the venom is in your blood stream and your heart pumps the venom is moving through your vasculature and can not be extracted. Medical care is really your only answer.
    ---------

    If you avoid the snakes, they will avoid you.
    If only that were true. I heard that the Ranger at McDowell was inside the turtle enclosure at the Visitor's center and got struck by a rattler on the hand, and that she's having lasting health problems.

    And from: Out Alive: Survive a Rattlesnake Bite

    There are only a few North American species that could deliver such a dangerous bite—either a Southern Pacific or a Mojave Green rattlesnake......the paramedics didn’t even realize what a severe bite I’d received until they had to resuscitate me en route to the emergency room. I’d stopped breathing as my lungs succumbed to the toxins attacking them. Thankfully, the hospital was only six miles away. Within an hour of my bite, doctors administered the first of 116 vials of antivenin that would ultimately save my life.

    Over the next three weeks, I stayed in the ICU, tortured by the snake-like hissing sound of the respirator and recovering from massive swelling and organ failure caused by the venom double-whammy. If it hadn’t been for my proximity to the hospital and my healthy heart—thanks in part to those regular canyon hikes—I wouldn’t have made it.
    I posted a picture of a rattler that I almost ran over out at McDowell, and a snake expert on this forum identified it as a Mojave Green. Gulp.

    Anyone carry a bee bonnet?

    Accidents happen. ANY cornered animal is going to defend itself. I have friends who have stepped on rattlers when they are out dumping the trash. Accidents happen.

    Out on the trail, use common sense. Always keep a sharp eye on your surroundings. Always listen (put the damned music ear buds away!). Don't place your hand or foot near any structure (rock, bush,..) that you do not have a clear view of.

    And for Gods sake, do not think even for a minute that a snake would prefer to bite you and that it is seeking you out. If you believe that, you've been reading too much Bible. A snake (or any wild animal) would much rather get away from you than have to defend itself. They truly are more scared of us than we are of them.

    The one time I don't bring my phone, I see a gila monster just slowly walking on 2Doo at Gold Canyon.

    On the plus side, I did clean the blue stairs on my SS - so there's that...

    Found this fella dead under these rocks on TRW at hawes, spooked me when I passed and when I went back I noticed it was not moving, some sort of sick joke to leave it there dead or they did not want to wait around for it to die? Smashed head, guts coming out of two spots. I moved it off the trail, was bound to drive some snowbird into a bush or cacti of thorns

    Saw this on Sunday afternoon. There's some foliage out here after a good rainy season so I stopped within about six feet of him. He didn't care at all.

    Not a great pick, but you get the point.

    I think that this one is most likely a Mojave Rattlesnake.

    Ugghhhhh knew I was pushing my luck at Gold Canyon last week.......the first one was calm until I tried to get by him, I was nervous to go around him since there was plenty of brush where another one might have been, we had a standoff for two minutes until I decided to walk by the grass around him. A mile down the trail was another one waiting for me, it was quite calm not even a rattle, I was pretty spooked for the rest of the ride since Gold Canyon is so narrow right now and grown in. I think I am done riding there for the summer til the snakes go back to sleep.

    Browns ranch today, spotted this hadnsome fella chilling on one of the new trails, he turned his head to pose for the shot or prepare to take a chunk out of me, love finding these guys. The seocnd encounter on the ride was a lazy rattler sprawled out, no rattle or agression, the third was a Gopher I believe, he got a little pissed and flattened himself out and rose up like he was going to strike for my photo. Glad to get the ride done without anymore rattlesnakes after the one.

    Like proof that you own an Apple Quicktake camera that still works. =)(https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Apple_QuickTake) Also like a no-touch-snek based on the head shape.

    Spotted about 3 snakes that failed to cross the road near the Granite Mountain trailhead of Brown's Ranch today. Then heard a really pissed off rattler in the scrub next to the trail as I rode by. Then about 2 seconds later, had a stand-off with a gila monster that didn't wanna give up the trail. At least not til I went to take a pic. Little bastard scurried off with barely enough time to snap these.

    Might only be the 4th or 5th I've ever spotted in the wild.

    Metric shit-tons of smaller lizards sprinting across/down/up/diagonal/sideways/etc. around as they played dodge-tire with my bike. All of them luckily won.

    Who needs to go riding? This little guy showed up on my front porch on Sunday. It’s a diamondback that measured out at 36”.

    Holy cow. I didn't know they could go up walls like that. I'm scared now.

    Can’t control the site from rotating the pics.

    The skin is out out the tanning solution and is currently drying. Rattle is 8 segments.

    Reptile Encounters: 2019-img-4305.jpg

    On the dirt CAP road next to deem hills. Blew past him and missed him by 6 inches with no response so I thought it was dead. I turned around to check him out which is when he let me know he was fine. He was locked in big time. He was a quiet guy...

    A small herd of us nearly ran over this d-back yesterday out at Usery. Some of us passing within ~1ft between us and the snake. Pulled a cropped frame from gopro footage of the ride:

    Later during the ride on the Hawes side, I got to see my 2nd gila monster of the year:

    It has been a banner year for snakes. I have seen more this year that the last five years combined.

    i live on the west end of SoMo, north side, laveen. one of the houses that i pass has found 12 rattlers on its property this year already. in the 10 years that i've been riding in this area i've seen 3 total. i haven't seen any over here this year...yet. which i'm very surprised about. i just hope i see them before they get pissed at me.
