I came across this Western Diamondback Rattlesnake in early July as it was about to head out onto Highway 60. I took it home and the next evening Bob and I brought home another rattler. From their behavior together it was clear that we had a male and female. Romeo the star of Waiting was extremely attentive to Stubby. We kept them for a few weeks then released them back to within a few miles of where we had found them, well away from Highway 60.
