How many snakes have you walked under?

Tracking can be made more difficult by assuming you know where the animal is going to be. This morning when we tracked Jaydin (male black-tailed rattlesnake), his signal seemed to be coming from all around. We were drawn to a large pack rat house, but only when we added a third dimension to our search, did we find our friend:

Jaydin, about 8 feet up in a walnut tree above Jeff.

Rattlesnakes do climb, but they’re not often caught in the act.
