This 2005 image depicted a mottled rock rattlesnake, Crotalus lepidus lepidus, a small banded rattlesnake species that along with the Trans-Pecos copperhead, and black tailed rattlesnake, is found only in the extreme southwestern quadrant of the hurricane prone area of the United States (Tennant 1998), which is of importance to those living in these regions, and first-responders. Rock rattlesnakes inhabit the limestone canyons, rock outcroppings, bluffs and mountain woodlands throughout the Trans-Pecos region of Texas, and a small portion of southeastern new Mexico, southward through an extensive area of Mexico (Price, Tennant 1998).
