38. Oh I dare say a pygmy rattler will show you the other side iffin you
aren't very careful. I have caught them with a pipe and a rope. They are very quick and not to be toyed with. A five foot diamond back bit my dog on the chest many years ago... I had to carry her to the roadside, take her to the vet. It made quite a mess of her chest.. almost lost her.
