An Arizona backyard captured a western diamondback rattlesnake. This venomous reptile is deadly and can be seen lurking. But it was well camouflaged, so that those who studied the image had difficulty identifying it.

Rattlesnake Solutions, a Phoenix-based snake removal and rattlesnake management service, posted a photo on Facebook showing a rock slope. They asked their followers if they could spot the serpent.

Others couldn’t.

Phillip Floyd stated, “I don’t still see it,” after looking at the image. “Somebody please show it to me.

Spot-the-snake challenges highlight how simple it is to accidentally cross paths with this dangerous snake, which experts claim has caused the greatest number of deaths in America.

Arizona-based Rattlesnake Solutions  posted a picture on Facebook of a rocky hill and asked followers whether they could spot the serpent in the scene.

‘The Western Diamondback Rattlesnake is notorious for its fatal bite, and has instilled a certain fear and paranoia in humans,’ according the University of Michigan’s School of Zoology. 

A person might be bitten by this species if they feel threatened. However, it generally prefers smaller mammals, birds and reptiles to other animals, according to the school.

“Injecting poison into the prey of this species in a matter seconds can cause a deathly serious injury.

If you look closely, you can see the snake hiding beneath the rock, obscured by a shadow

The shadow of a shadow obscures the snake, so if you pay attention, you will see it hiding under the rock.

Some of its followers were able to spot it hiding under a rock. A shadow obscured the presence.

Adam Smith stated, “I immediately saw it and if i saw it in person I would go about my business if i had a yard.” These snakes do not stalk people. You can accept them if you are aware of their presence and be careful about where you go. These snakes are not being relocated by companies.

Dennis Campbell added: “Beware of rattlers. Be calm. They are more afraid of you than you. They won’t mind if you surprise them. I have had at least half a dozen of these encounters, and they never bit me.

The snake was captured and relocated into the wilderness after spending days hanging out under the rock to keep cool

After spending several days under rocks to cool down, the snake was caught and taken into wilderness.

Dave Holland, a snake catcher, posted the image. Holland said he was called upon to assist the homeowner after spotting the unexpected visitor.

Holland said that the snake measured slightly more than 3 feet in length and was coiled beneath a large boulder right in front of a rodent hole.

“My customer observed the snake at a safe distance from me until I arrived, so that we could pinpoint its exact location. It was easy to remove the snake and I was not concerned about my quarry getting into the burrow.

He stated that the snake probably was hiding under the rocks in order to stay cool. The snake was eventually relocated to the wilderness.

Some followers came to the defense of the snake, saying they're usually harmless

The western diamond rattlesnake bites hundreds of people a year, and is believed to be responsible for the most snake bite deaths in the US

The Western Diamond Rattlesnake, which is thought to have the highest number of fatal snake bites in America each year, bites hundreds upon hundreds.

Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum stated that the species tend to curl up in the shade to keep cool, while hibernating in the winter is done in cave-like structures. 

The Nature Mapping Foundation estimates that it can inflict hundreds upon hundreds each year.

It stated that the Western Diamondback would “coil, rattle fearsomely and hold its ground when threatened.” Their rattles can be used to warn the animal off – “stay away.”

Outdoor Life Reports that the snake’s venom is full of dangerous substances like hemotoxins, myotoxins and cytotoxins.

According to the report, bites of this nature can lead to severe internal bleeding and external bleeding. It said that swelling, bruises, and blisters are all common signs of skin damage.

Untreated rattlesnake bites can cause death in 20 percent of cases.
