    All the e-mail said was:

    Be careful out there. These photos were taken south of Reno.

    Damn! Somebody get a can of gasoline.....better make that 6-8 cans!

    I've always heard about dens of rattlesnakes just never actually came across one myself. That picture sure makes me glad I haven't cause I'm DEFINATELY not a fan of snakes, especially big rattlesnakes.

    Glad I live in New Zealand, no snakes down here, or anything that wants to eat you!

    Do you know if they just leave them alone or if they terminate them?

    I do not like snakes!

    Are you sure that is South of Reno.
    It looks like Congress is in session.

    I was thinking maybe it was the annual meeting of the Bar Association.

    Anybody have any BBQ sauce?

    From what my captain says; he is pretty liberal (The guy who took the pic.. well come to think of it my captain too but anyway) so I am of a mind to think he just took the pics from a distance and left the snakes alone.

    I can get the info one of the other firefighters I work with is suposedly dating the picture taker. As far as I know the pictures were taken south east of reno the person taking the picture works for the adjacent department Sparks Fire. If there is interest I will try and track down some more detailed info.
