Colorado Springs Colorado Snake Situation: I am terrified of snakes but am trying to get over my phobia by learning more about them. I really liked your web site! There was a lot of useful information. And that yellow snake trap is very cool. Though, I live in the city and don't have a use for one. Snake poop pictures were gross but at the same time it was interesting to see how a snake poops. I did have a quick question, if you have time. I live in Denver and spend a lot of time outdoors in an area that has a lot of rattle snakes (Roxborough State Park). One day I was walking on a narrow trail that had a lot of brush on either side of it. I heard a rattle, panicked, and ran (my friend, who was walking behind me, swears it was a rattle snake). If that happens again should I not run? In elementary school I remember reading a story about snakes that said you should stand still until the snake leaves. But if you're afraid of snakes that's kind of hard to do. Stay safe with those snakes!
I've lived here in California for five years and have never before seen anything as magnificent as the diamond back rattler I recently encountered About 5 feet long in a residential area on the sidewalk near a more natural area...I wondered why there was a stopped the car in front of me until I saw what i thought was a huge python. I got out of my car to try to take video, and it actually came towards me...I was about 20 feet away at first, but by the time I was at my car door he was just on the passenger side wheel area. Like an idiot, I hit the wrong button on my phone and the video didn't record. didn't even get a picture... Amazing animal! Glad to read that you catch and release rather than doing harm to any of these magnificent creatures...your pictured rattler is amazing....and the feeling of awe is mutual.
