Tiger Rattlesnakes Mating

Tuesday, August 29th, 2017

While mountain biking on the Upper 50 Year trail in the Catalina mountains this weekend, I spotted these two tiger rattlesnakes.  Since they appeared much more interested in each other than with me, I stopped to take a look.  It became obvious that they weren’t much concerned about me because they were mating in the bushes!

Now, I’m not going to give a biology lesson here, but I was curious about how rattlesnakes ‘do it.’  Apparently the male has an organ near it’s tail.   Rattlesnakes reproduce when the male presses his tail beneath a female’s tail to inseminate the female. This is accomplished over several hours when the male lays on top of the passive female and makes jerking motions with his hind portion. (Hope this isn’t too graphic!)  The female then stores the sperm until the following spring when she will hatch live baby rattlesnakes.  Apparently she’s not much of a mom though.  The babies are left to fend for themselves as soon as they hatch.  So now you know!

Biking or hiking with Southwest Trekking is a great way to explore our Sonoran Desert.  While we can’t guarantee animal voyeurism on every excursion, we do guarantee you a fun time!
