"Rattle snakes" Devils Tower Warnings Or Dangers Tip by scaleguy

Devils Tower Warnings and Dangers: 3 reviews and 1 photos

Rattle snakes are found in the area. There are a lot of hiding places in the rocks. Stay on the trails unless you know what to look for and how to respond. Most common bites are from people who step on the snake by accident. The second most common way to get bit is to ignore the rattle and annoy the snake. The good news, approximately 30% of the bites are "dry" bites which means no venom is injected. Still not good enough odds for me.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
