    A large bodied greenish-brown rattlesnake with a grey and black banded tail, Mohave Rattlesnakes range from Southern California to west Texas and deep into Mexico. These snakes were given a bad reputation as the “Deadly Mohave Green” in the early 1900s but have since become more known for the two types of venom they carry which depends on their locality.
