More great photos from from a field trip in Mexico shared by Craig Pelke. This time he finds an Eastern Twin Spotted Rattlesnake. He writes...
I love these gloves, and they are perfect for my work with smaller montane rattlesnakes. I have big hands, and these gloves provide great dexterity and a level of gentleness. The snakes rarely feel compelled to even attempt a defensive strike.
