    This is for @SnakeCharmer and other folk who are interested in rattlesnakes. I grew up just a few miles from Lethbridge Alberta, where this video was made. These are prairie rattlesnakes. They are protected and this guy rescues and relocates them. Most people don't think about rattlesnakes in Canada but they are there.

    Thanks @CBone! :thumbsup:

    It's been a few years since I have done a rescue but it always seemed to be a baby whenever I did one. Babies are very easy to handle compared to adults. They aren't nervous because they aren't aware of danger at that age yet.

    Wowzah!
    I am always shuffling snakes off the road where I live so they don’t get squished.
    They are a very important balance to nature. Some folks kill snakes just cuzz they are snakes, just gotta educate folks.
    Thanks Buddy! Good to see you at Squeaky Wheel just the other day!
