Description:
This is a 'dusky pygmy' rattlesnake, Sistrurus miliaris barbouri, the southern counterpart of the 'Carolina pygmy' rattler. It ranges from southern South Carolina, westward across southern Alabama and Mississippi, and south throughout the state of Florida (Connant, 1975). Superficially resembling the Carolina subspecies, it often has a dusted appearance due to the diffuse black mottling in the ground color.Throughout its range, the dusky pygmy rattlesnake inhabits the pine flatwoods, moist prairies and virtually any type of other habitats that offer sufficient cover and are in close proximity to wetlands (Tennant, 1998). Dense populations of this little rattlesnake can be found in many areas of Florida, especially in the moist prairies around the everglades (Tennant, 1998). Dusky pygmy rattlesnakes are one of the species that will readily invade towns and buildings with hurricanes and/or floods, making it an important snake to recognize by first-responders.
