It is easy to tell them apart......the Prairie Rattlers say, "Howdy
partner.", before they bite you and the Fla Diamondbacks say, "Hi, Ya'll."

Gad, that's embarassing. I didn't look close enough at the gator other than
to think that it looked in good shape for a recently deceased big
gator...(!). And I've always been lame in telling one type of rattlesnake
from another. So I guess we (I) can all feel better and relaxed that these
dudes & dudettes didn't kill these nice herps.
