Scary snake. I would never thought they would be up that high. The single Mojave that I ever saw was when I was hunting birds near Arizona City. I almost stepped on the darn thing and it still never rattled. The most disconcerting thing is the venom with it being both a hemotoxin and a neurotoxin. That would make for some bad ju ju.

We were surprised by the Mojave at the time. Not much is surprising anymore. Geez, I have seen Javelina at 8000' in the northeatern Whites.

Welcome the forum, WarrZone. You will find more snakes below the Rim than above, but for the most part, they are not a problem. Just always watch where you put your hands and feet especially in the spring/summer and when it rains hard.

Shall we discuss other wild things which can kill you while fishing in the Mogollon Rim Country?

Back in the day the ancient Salado and Sinagua people would have defended themselves from invading anglers. Now days, private land owners and wildlife do it.

And treat any Bigfoot you see with extreme respect.

There shouldn't be an issue with Bigfoot sightings in Rim Country. Last I heard he was somewhere deep in Arkansas...

He's fishing just about everyday now. Has a bass boat and a drift boat and a dedicated room and bay in the garage just for fishing. He's livin' the dream. Plus his home waters are only minutes away. The bum!!!

I always love a good snake or bear story on here.

I have seen a few black rattlers on the way down the trail head for CCl.

They like rocky ravines and washes near water so go figure they are near our favorite spots.

look at the range below the rim http://www.reptilesofaz.org/Snakes-S...-molossus.html

Hah, I grabbed a gorgeous, feisty king off the road a couple weeks back at night going to work, was sitting in the middle of a road that gets decent use. Tried to bite me three times, but I got him off the road and moving towards the farm fields and away from the city. Later the next week saw a police officer at the store I work at and later asked an employee what that was about- he had responded to a call about an even bigger king on the property, which is in a fairly rural town but still in the center of the city. Seems to be a lotta kings lately...

I encountered a rattler this weekend on one of the Rim Creeks.

Its was a black tailed rattlesnake. They look a lot like Mohave's but Mohaves are typically lower desert dwellers, meaner and often have a faded "coon" tail. The pic in this thread is a black tail.
