Watch out for rattlesnakes in the foothills of the Tucson Catalina Mountains

We have spotted two large dead rattle snakes in the neighborhood during the last couple of weeks. As the temperature at night drops into the 60’s and 50’s, these venomous snakes may seek warmth on the neighborhood streets.

Bring a flashlight on evening walks. Also, consider Professional Snake Avoidance Classes for your Dog. We are not associated with, nor do we endorse the one in the link above, but we are sending a dog to this one for training.

The snake in the photo was one we encountered while walking another dog in the Rillito River in Tucson. We never saw it as we walked right up to it and were close enough for it to strike. They stay so well hidden in the shadows.

So, be cautious out there!
