AZ Prospecting

Be careful out there!

Danger is all around.

Just be mindful, your never alone in the desert.

If you appear to be a threat, some residents will strike first.

Here's a Western Diamondback (Coontail)

If the venom don't kill ya the hospital bill will.

Antivenom is 3 - $6,000.00 a dose and it takes anywhere from

8 to 20 doses to treat a bite. That doesn't even include the rest of the bill.

Treatment can run $30,000.00 to more than $100,000.00 depending on the amount

of venom injected and the hospital involved.

Notice Rich has his snake guards on while drywashing.

Not a bad idea.

This Mohave Green was watching us from under a rock.

Not sure what kind of rattlesnake this one is but once it got into the

grass it became hard to see.
