Black-tailed Rattlesnake in Sedona, Arizona

Southwest Adventures with Rattlesnakes

Sedona is home to several species of rattlenakes, including the black-tailed rattlesnake, the prairie rattlesnake, the diamondback rattlesnake, and the Mojave rattlesnake. These snakes fill a purposeful niche by keeping rodent populations under control.  They also strive to avoid humans and warn those coming too close.  Find out how to be safe in Sedona while hiking in places inhabited by these beautiful but dangerous creatures.


Arizona ravens are known for their intelligence as well as amusing antics.
