I have yet to see a single Diamondback since we moved to Georgia, only Timbers. Which is cool, Timbers seem really laid back compared to Diamondbacks.

Beautiful and how lucky to see both. SO happy to that you left them alone and let them live. Hopefully more people will start doing the same.

Yes I agree , the last one I killed was a big diamondback and it was trying the whole time to just get away , after that I decided I'd never kill another

Couple of very beautiful snakes. Canebrakes are some of the prettiest snakes in the world to me. Love the variety they can display.

If you are up around Tennille, you are just a little too far north and west for the most common EDB range in Georgia. I grew up one a couple counties SE of Washington and timbers are still far more plentiful.

I did not know that, thanks for the info. I grew up in Fla, and have seen my fill of Diamondbacks and Pygmies, so it is cool that there is something less obnoxious as DBs.

Now, if only I had moved North of the Gnatline...

Our mountain timbers add more variations too. Most are olive-yellow with a black tail, and I've seen a couple that were completely black.

I have never seen a live wild eastern diamondback, always wanted to.

I don't reckon I've ever seen one alive in the wild either and I live on the periphery of their range

A big diamondback in a fighting coil with its head nearly knee high off the ground is a most impressive sight. It`ll get your attention.

Nice shots, and I commend you for letting them live.

Compared to these Timber snakes, Eastern Diamondbacks are really uppity. I had a room mate who collected snakes. Part of his "herpitarium" included at least a dozen EDBs. It was always fun cleaning out their cages.

Yea, canebrakes are a lot more docile than a diamondback. Easier to handle when you are catching them too. It doesn`t take much to make a diamondback fly hot.

I have never encountered an aggressive timber rattler. Many won't hardly even coil and rattle when you mess with them to try to get a good pic-they just keep trying to crawl off.
