    Rattlesnake Tales

    Rattlesnake Tales

    From a book called Rattlesnakes by J Frank Dobie...music and reading by me

    This is a fascinating collection of stories about
    animals and their relationships with rattlesnakes such as dogs, cats and mockingbirds...
    About rattlesnake behavior..."Do baby rattlesnakes jump into their mother's mouths?'
    and rattlesnake bolas

    Unfortunately in these stories a lot of rattlesnakes get killed...
    I do not advocate this by reading it...
    would really like for rattlesnakes to be able to live peaceably along with the rest of us but well in this story there are some instances of death....death to rattlesnakes mostly and some kind of graphic...and then one human death that i can think of


    actually this sign might better say "Beware of Humans" to all the rattlesnakes
