SNAKES! It is that time of year.
As you all know it is the desert out there and when it gets warm, we get snakes. Please dress accordingly and take percautions as required.
The snake in the picture is a Mojave Green and for some reason they love to come visit when you are working equipment. I think they feel the vibrations and come looking for food but, it puts them in contact with us. They can be aggressive and their poison is very dangerous.
Here is a link to a good website on the snake: http://www.californiaherps.com/snakes/pages/c.s.scutulatus.html
Ofcourse we also have multiple other Rattle Snakes and a few that are non-poisonous. So take some time and look over the photos.
