  NPRatt-2.jpg - Having reconsidered an outing, this Northern Pacific Rattlesnake ( Crotalus oreganus oreganus ) returns to it's hole -- on Claremont Canyon fire trail, Oakland, CA on July 17, 2013. Photo by Erica Rutherford.  The venom of this snake is potentially dangerous to humans. Rattlesnakes are important members of the natural community. They will not attack, but if disturbed or cornered, they will defend themselves. Reasonable watchfulness should be sufficient to avoid snakebite. Give them distance and respect.
