His rattles have been preserved in epoxy. The hide, including the head, are curing

Your utter disrespect for wildlife is really appaling. Like I said, shameful.

No disrespect. It is not unlike hunting in general. I have a couple of "remembrances" of past deer hunting trips. The Venison that we got has all been used up though.

And, Westerners look at things much differently than you Easterners Steve.

I can respect the fact that youre actually using parts of the animal, instead of just killing for "sport", but my question is, why kill it in the first place? Its not gonna harm you unless you bother it, and theyre beneficial to have around. That snake in the photo was just passing through has been around a loooong time, rid Arizona of dozens/hundreds of pounds of disease-spreading, crop-destroying rodents and other animals, and is now gonna be a hat band? Thats sad. And if you despise rattlers so much, why would you proudly display their skins on your wardrobe??? Snakeskin looks good on snakes, not on humans, so why dont you just admire it on the critters that God intended it to be on in the first place?

The pictured one was within a dozen feet of my pool - where my grandchildren were playing.

Sorry - the grandkids come first -
