Mama Rattler Found Full of Babies

Mama Rattler Found Full of Babies

 

This six foot female rattlesnake was recently killed near a residence on Highway 71, south of Marianna. When the bulging snake was slit open, it revealed a dozen live baby rattlers inside the host snake. These are shown in the accompanying pictures. Rattlesnake eggs will stay inside their mother until they hatch. Most of the time there are 8-10 babies born at once and are about 10 inches long. Babies are born venomous but cannot rattle and are often more aggressive than the adults.
