That isn't true.Some hives are more aggressive than others,all you need to do is go near them and that's enough provocation for them.I would imagine its the same for snakes.

My understanding is they are pretty thin in your area.

Aix (and others) -

The picture I have posted above, and I assume that of Taxi, are Crotalus viridis, Prairie rattlesnakes. The blue flowers are indeed lupine (Lupinus caudatus). There are only two counties in Idaho that have that particular species of rattlesnake, the rest of the drier, lowland parts of the state have a different species. Of course, the higher mountains and the heavily timbered panhandle don't have rattlers. Here where I live, they are relatively common.

I sure like the vivid coloration on those timber rattlers.

Can't get bit by a dead snake.... If you guys that are snake advocates think it's a justification to say, well they east mice, you should quit killing coyotes and fox. Mammals can eat a lot more. I can see a reason to not kill all snakes but ones that can send you to the hospital don't go far with me.

I have picked a few up with a stick and put them off the road. I think that cars will kill more of them than humans ever will. They like to lay in the warm road. [Linked Image]

Nice pic, thanks for posting it. They are very cool looking both the yellow and gray phase.
