This, however, is who she encountered. A four foot Prairie Rattler, who had happily made a home under the vault toilet. Yikes - talk about getting the crap scared out of yah.
|Here it is slithering back to the safety of it's toilet home. Below is just its rattle, which is quite large|
The highlight, however, came later that evening, when this magnificent creature crossed our path. Such a beauty! If it doesn't already have a name, I think it should be called Lady M!
