Western diamondback rattlesnake (Crotalus atrox) - An enduring symbol of the West, this magnificent animal is still common in parts of Texas and northern Mexico. In the spring, they are quite plentiful, as many as 40 can be seen in a few hours of night driving through good habitat. It is quite likely that 7-footers still roam the Tamaulipan Scrub country.
