  NPRatt-9-10.jpg - Two Northern Pacific Rattlesnakes ( Crotalus oreganus oreganus ) found about 50 ft apart - on Claremont Canyon fire trail, Oakland, CA on May 21, 2013. The upper snake was about 24" long; the lower about 18".  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.
