Talking Got to start watchin my step

While out mowing yesterday I spotted a snake coming out from under the mower. At first I thought it was a Bull snake cause I didn't see any rattles but on a closer inspection after I got off the mower I saw I had cut them off. Went and got the Kodak out off the truck and took a few pics. As you can tell he wasn't very happy so after the photo op I finished him off didn't figure I need a very MAD and quiet rattler hanging around the yard.

Since he was about a foot and a half long he'd off probably had 7 or 8 rattles before the mower shortened his tail.

He didn't look very happy. It would be silent without them rattles!

I have never seen a rattler with that coloration. Is that a Pygmy?

Thanks. I thought I knew most of my Georgia snakes, and didn’t realize you were posting from out West.
