Snakes of Socorro

There are at least 23 species of snakes that live in the Socorro region. Of these only five belong to the rattlesnakes, members
of the Family Viperidae. All New World vipers, including rattlesnakes belong to the sub-family Crotalinae, the pit vipers. Rattlesnakes, members of the  genera, Crotalus have a series of horny segments on their tail, loosely connected to form a rattle.
