Got this little one from a friend not too long ago, and tonight was the first time Ive attempted to feed it. Its ever had f/t before, and didnt seem like it quite knew how to react. I ended up having to leave the mouse in the cage, and take off out of the apartment, because just walking around was freaking it out. It was a successful feeding though, I just wish I had gotten the pics.

"She" is actually pretty small. Maybe two feet. "She" was w/c last year, and hasnt grown much since then. "She" wasnt regularly fed, so I hope to put some size on "her" just with better care.

Its also lacking the raccoon striped tail. Though Im sure thats a lesser known feature.

Prairie rattlesnake indeed!
