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.
