Pigmy Rattlesnake


Characteristics

  • 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 had noticed that I was having a flea problem with my dog. I hired Horizons and followed their suggestions after they treated my yard and house. The service was wonderful and the fleas are gone! I have since hired them to do my pest service, mosquito service, and snake control. I have recommended them to my family and friends.
