Rattlesnakes

Mrs. Johnson

Reagan Magnet School


Rattlesnakes are poisonous snakes that live in North America and South America.


A rattlesnake has a rattle, a set of hollow rings, on the end of his tail.

The snake uses his rattle to warn predators to stay away.


Rattlesnakes do not always rattle before they strike.

The diamondback rattler is the heaviest of all poisonous snakes.


Rattlesnakes send out poison through two long, hollow fangs in their upper jaw.


Rattlesnakes are camouflaged from predators.


Rattlesnakes eat birds and small animals. The eat rats and other animals that destroy crops.

Listen to a rattlesnake!


Notice the forked tongue. The snake uses this to "taste" the air and find its prey.


Females give birth to 10-14 live young. They do not lay eggs like most snakes. Newborn rattlers take care of themselves. Their bite is dangerous.

Facts from the Texas Department of Wildlife


Snakes are part of the ecosystem. Predators: Roadrunners, hawks, eagles, king snakes, and man.
