This is how rattlesnakes rattle.
By - Pedrica1
Damn thanks dude. This is definitely something interesting I learned today!
I always thought there was something in them. mind blown.
The sound always make you sorta dance 😂 (ps: sorry for emoji I know reddit hates it but that's really my face rn)
Emoji approved. Use them sparingly and in good taste. Good day sir.
Sounds more like what happens inside a jumping bean rather than a rattlesnake rattle...
Wanna know something else interesting? Some of them are evolving to not have rattles.
My daughter was bitten a few months ago. The snake did not rattle before striking her. It did have a rattle though.
I hope it was a death rattle
And I hope she's okay
She is doing great. I actually created this account to post pictures of it a month or two ago.
I’m not sure what you mean.
I mean the noise it would make right before it died
Can confirm, the snake is dead.
As an Arizona kid I used to play with these all the time. They are fascinating.
My step daddy is from Louisiana and he forgets how many rattle snake tails he's given us lmao like a cat coming back with a bird for the fifth day in a row
Cats shouldn't be outside, they destroy local wildlife
i mean..... yes... but shut up.
It seems to be feral cats that are responsible for most of the predation. I got curious and read the studies that are widely quoted in the media. The numbers for feral cats get quoted a lot in the media. House cats do hunt, but at far lower rates. My cats are indoor/outdoor. They can come and go as they please. They love enjoying the outdoors and I’m not taking that from them. They would be miserable.

Everyone I know with outdoor cats always says this, and then I hear stories about same kitty bringing home another squirrel/bird/bunny, or they get an xray and their stomachache is full of little bones, or there's a mouse graveyard under the deck etc.
Not trying to be a dick, and I love pets, but everyone thinks their kitty isn't the problem, which is *exactly* the problem. I replied to a comment about someone saying 'like a cat bringing a bird home 5 days in a row', which is obviously not great for bird populations. It seemed more like an expression than an actual event, but it probably came from experience.
Just because you see your cat come and go without a corpse in its mouth doesn't mean you know what they're up to when they do go.
Indoor cats are happy, it may be harder on a cat to lose its outdoor freedom, but that doesn't mean it's worth the impact on local ecosystems because
Cats are pretty much apex predators and will 100% kill for fun regardless of one's opinion on cats liking the ability to come and go.
This is totally a ridiculous comparison, but a compulsive serial killer would probably like to come and go from jail, for pretty much the same reason as a cat.
I didn’t make it up about the studies differentiating between feral and house cats. I know my cats hunt sometimes. It just isn’t nearly as much as feral cats. People still get to choose whether their cats stay indoors all the time or not. Mine are indoor/outdoor.

Where I live cats aren't allowed outside (bylaw), there is a list of reasons from the humane society [here](http://concordanimals.com/Responsible_Cat_Ownership.htm).
You can check your bylaws, but just because there is a decision available, doesn't mean both options are equally 'correct' or in some cases even legal.
It's dangerous to take one study and assume all the facts are there, or to say because X is worse, that makes Y okay because its less than half as bad as X.
I doubt police/bylaw would ever actually enforce this, but hopefully more education on the topic is helpful to you and your kitties!
I live in Wyoming. There are definitely no laws about keeping your cat indoors here lol. Even when I lived in the city, the law was about roaming animals. You can still let your animals outside, they just couldn’t roam.

Yeah, generally the law would only be 'in effect' if the animal was unsupervised (roamimg) around here, but for cats it's pretty much if they are off-leash. It would likely only be enforced if the cat was caught/filmed killing an endangered animal or something, and you don't want to eff with the wildlife enforcement crowd because they do not mess around.
All in all, it's probably not a huge deal to let a cat outside provided your not surrounded by endangered species, but it does negatively impact local animal populations
You can get an electric fence and collars for cats, or use netting if they have to stay in your yard. House cats do still hunt, but the numbers attributed to feral cats are often used in the media in stories about why to keep house cats indoors. That is misleading, and causes a lot of hysteria about letting cats outside. I don’t know any other country aside from the US that is so anti outdoor cats. I’m opposed to keeping cats indoors if they want to go outside. I don’t preach at others about it though. Predators gonna predate. Hell, if I’m lucky, I’m detrimental to local wildlife when I go hunting. I don’t think there’s a single person in Wyoming that would call the police if they saw a cat snarfing down a bird or rodent. Wildlife enforcement around here is not interested in someone’s cat catching a snack. You’re way more likely to piss people in Wyoming off by blocking traffic so you can get out of your car to pet a bear or harass bison. These people leave blood smears on the road annoying the locals, and making us late.
And so does local wildlife
Same, grew up outside of Buckeye and goodyear. I had a collection of rattles, and had rattlesnake for dinner a few times.
This was actually interesting af.
My world just got a little bit bigger too (:
Yo this is badass but is anyone else like mildly freaked out when they rotate it to show the inside or pull it apart?
Does it grow in layers that like kind of 'fall off' but then don't because of the shape? Brb, going to google.
Edit: it happens every time they shed.
Do they rattle when the snake farts? 🤔
Probably a little soft rattle
please tell me if snakes have buttholes
Yes, they do.
If they are soaked in water they come apart easy. If you have several they can be put back together small-large. After they dry they will rattle again.
Damn, that's interesting
But how does it snake ?
That’s super interesting, but for some weird reason I’m kind of grossed out? And I’m never grossed out lol
now i’m going to go to the sahara and find a rattlesnake and have a whole conversation explaining how their rattles work
Superintendent Chalmers: Did that child just say what's a battle?
Principal Skinner: Yes, he said 'What's that rattle', it's about the heating duct.
Superintendent Chalmers: Hmm, it sounded like battle.
This blows my mind like the pufferfish depuffering out of water lol
Who is this
No, they have baby's bones Inside just like maracas
all i can think about is that poor snake that lost its rattle 😞

3d print one for research!
3D print guys are gonna shit.
I love fascinating videos like this! Does anyone have recommendations to subreddits that are both fascinating and educational by chance? Thanks!
the different segments are made from a material similar to human nails
I have like fifty of those lol theirs a bunch of them were my cottage is in Ontario
Yesterday. this was literally posted here yesterday
Until you’ve killed one with a stick you don’t know what it means to feel alpha
That sound. I'm brainwashed to run for my life.
I know, it skeeves me out. Every time I have heard it, it was because there was an annoyed rattler. One time three of them started rattling, one after the other. I couldn’t see any of them, and I legit gave myself heat exhaustion bailing down a creek embankment and getting the duck out of the woods lol.
I'm glad the duck was safe
Saved it from certain death for sure. Poor duck. It wasn’t their time yet.
🌈The more you know 🌈
I do it like this *shakes butt ferociously*
Wonder if the snake is still alive…
Probably not. You can find rattles in areas where there’s a lot of rattlers though.
I thought dogs laid eggs. And I learned something today.
Say rattle one more time
Yes, very nice. Now give it back.
I hate when they explain things as if I’m stupid.
Damn that's interesting
That’s fascinating. It must grow as they shed their skin.
Sorry to hear that hope shes ok
Damn that IS interesting. How does it grow and develop like that. Like ima assuming they all have to be connected somehow. And with blood flow right?
This is how a rattlesnake's rattle rattles
Isn’t there usually a snake attacked to the rattle?
