OBSERVE YOUR STEP

Almost stepped on this lady yesterday morning 920am underneath one of our jujube trees at Sunever Farms. Literally jumped backwards out of my sandals. She never rattled, never shifted out of her coil. I got my sandal back with a stick and then took this (um) sub-optimal photo. She was awake and flicking her tongue. Maybe catching spray from the water coming out of a leak in the tubing? Not too big. Whaddya think she is…?

[ANSWER: Probably a Green Mojave rattlesnake, possibly napping after a kill, or hiding out, waiting for prey to come to the water…]
