Yeah, not thinking the wife would allow that in the house. Pretty cool though.

Rattlers rare and protected here, so no chance I'd get one anyways.

That’s a beautiful mount and the gloss coat really makes it pop.

That's awesome and very creative. Great job! What is the story with the snake?

I've not had a rattler show me his teeth like that but have had moccasins do the tooth flicking thing.

Great mount, it is more realistic looking than most snake mounts I've seen. Guy did a good job.
