Pigmy Rattlesnake


  • Average length is between 16 and 24 inches
  • Commonly inhabits flatwoods, mixed forests and areas near lakes and marshes
  • Diet consists of small mammals, birds, insects, and other reptiles

The pygmy rattlesnake, or ground rattlesnake, is a small venomous species of pit vipers. Because of its small size it is unable to produce enough victim to usually kill a human, however bites should be avoided and can cause necrosis. Small children and the elderly are especially at risk. The rattle of the pygmy rattlesnake is relatively quiet, and some individuals do not rattle at all. These snakes have a grayish body with regular black oval spots and reddish orange pigments.

I was not happy with old pest control provider. I felt like they were charging me a lot and I was not seeing results. I called Horizons Professional Pest Control and within 2 months of monthly services, my pest issues were resolved and I saved money too!
