I don't know much about hots (venomous snakes), so I can't help you on this one...

The lucky part is it just laid there for almost 2 hrs until the sun rose over the hill before moving off.
They're the laziest creatures ever, LOL. While it's always good to be cautious around a venomous snake, a lot of people don't realize they just wanna be left alone... as long as you don't taunt or step on them, they typically won't be interested in biting a human. Anyway, great shots! I've been meaning to go "field herping" for a while, since I've heard there are TONS of rattlers near where I work.

Lol, it's quite possible that you do and ya just haven't seen any yet. I see lizards like the one in my top picture all the time. Though this one was actually nice enough to let me get close enough for a picture. Usually they are easily scared.

I suppose it is possible, especially if I head east (towards the central valley)... hmmmm, I'll have to investigate that!

My friend did get back to me. It was a speckled rattlesnake.

Finding this one was just luck. I've hiked Shaw Butte here in Phoenix for almost 20 yrs and have only seen two rattlers there. Both speckled.
