Which is which?

Today we feature a guest post from our dear friend, Roger Repp, originally posted on our Facebook page. Hopefully the first of many – enjoy!

Greetings honored visitors from other places,

This is to be my first official posting to the ASP Facebook page. (Or any other Facebook page, for that matter). I would like to begin the process with a simple quiz. Below this text you should see six images of rattlesnake love. Some of these are courtship images, and some are mating.


Which is which?

I will check in a few days from now with the answer. I won’t say that there is no such thing as a wrong answer. There is only one correct answer, which should be obvious to any rattlesnake aficionado.

However, I’ve seen many top-notched herpetologists who obviously do not know the difference. So, fear not, and guess anyway. I look forward to seeing your answers.

Best to all from Tucson,
(Roger Repp, Tucson Herpetological Society President)
