Here is another one from the same day in Burro Creek ACEC. This one is greenish overall with a slightly yellow tint to the ventral side. The dorsal side turns from greenish to brown. I think this one is a Mojave Rattler, am I right?

Wouldn't like to meet up with any of those. They all look venomous.

I just noticed this thread...if you haven't done so already, just google "mojave rattlesnake" and at the top are pictures of it. Yep, sure looks like it. Pretty animal!

More likely a western diamond back. Majave usualy have much wider white rings than black but they are commonly confused.
