Lots of snakes out there this year, and a lot of snake tracks on the fireroads too. Saw this guy yesterday. Anyone know what kind of snake this is? It was shaking its tail like a rattler but there was no rattle on it.

That was on Sullivan fireroad, but we saw others as well.

Thanks for the link danger. I was amused by this:

Additional notes: Individuals may excrete musk, vibrate tail, and bite when handled.
I think mine was a dud, I didn't get musked or bitten.

Actually that is a super rare California brown and yellow ringed mountain mamba.(Ringabus blackabus yellowbus)
Deadly to the touch, poison glands on the skin.....death comes quickly.
Thank goodness for your gloves. :D

Their blood does contain anti-venom which lets them withstand the bite of venomous snakes. They are rattler eaters.
