You should feed that poor skinny bugger something . . . ;-)

IMHO, he's a canebrake, the timber rattlers I've seen (between 1,600 and 3,000 ASL in western MD and eastern WV) have all had yellowish to greenish pigmentation.

A few of the sources I found said they were the same species, others maintain they differ. . . I did a quick search and found this:

Canebrake Rattlesnake - American International Rattlesnake Museum

Scientifically they are both the same species Crotalus horridus.

The last one I caught was tan and light brown. Wife saw a diamondback they are a bit thicker in the middle section.

According to what I've read the timber/cane are less aggressive and I tend to agree both snakes I've handled have been really cooperative. Course I always keep an eye on the head at all times.

I am just fascinated by them and the various color combinations can vary within our 12,000 acre hunting lease. I can only imagine what other colors can be chosen by nature. I need to get my own digital camera as the one I used is the wifes lol.
