Mojave Rattlesnake

Crotalus scutulatus

The mojave rattlesnake is a medium-sized rattlesnake that is often confused with the western diamondback as they both have similar patterns and a “coon tail”. They can be differentiated from the western diamondback by the two large scales found on the top of the head. They are potentially the most lethal of all of the rattlesnake species that occur in the US.
