Mexican West Coast Rattlesnake
This neonate or newborn rattler, though only the length of a pencil, may someday grow to be a 6ft long behemoth. Despite this snake's small stature, they are fully equipment in the venom department, and can be lethal from the moment they are born. The single button rattle indicates that this snake is so young that it has not undergone it's first shed yet, and without another rattle segment present, any attempt to shake it's tail will just result in silence until the snake gets a bit older.
