This month’s image of a Carolina Pygmy Rattlesnake (Sistrurus miliarius miliarius) was captured by Tucker Ennis.
“Individuals from this particular region usually have a beautiful reddish coloration. This individual was a neonate, or newborn, and was only slightly bigger than a quarter while curled up.”
