    Why don't they let the illegals use these culverts when invading America?

    Dang. That's a big feller even for Texas. Maybe a few of them in the Rio Grande would discourage unwanted residents.

    Looks about right, for a Texas culvert. HOWEVER...The snakes are found in the deserts of California. Hallettsville is halfway between San Antonio and Houston and gators don't get that big around those parts because there's not much more than stock ponds and creeks in that part of Texas...and...Snopes says the gator snakes find by a power/light company is a decade's old urban myth.

    Darlin, Diamond Backs are found from the Atlantic to the Pacific. They have some GREAT rattler round ups in TX as well as the rest of the Southern states. They are a blast and lots a great eating. Rattler cooked every way you can think of. ;)

    Sugar, it looks like neither of us are aware of the actual range of the Western Diamondback Rattlesnake. However, they are yummylicious. I actually prefer chunks of rattler roasted on the grill ala shish kabob with chunks of onion and yellow squash.

    The Snopes article I cited did say the snakes in the photo were Western Diamondback Rattlesnakes. I merely used the general term "snakes" to identify the Western Diamondback Rattlesnakes in the photo on this poll.

    Sugar, clearly I was talking about the Western Diamondback Rattlesnakes in the photo. The snakes you've referenced aren't the type in the photo....Nice attempt at a save but a miss, all the same. Especially since the image you've provided does not show a range from the Atlantic to the Pacific.

    BTW...Without the source, your range map could be for anything from the black ground squirrel to the Southern Yellow Bellied Sapsucker.
