Doyle

This is my Eastern Diamondback Rattlesnake (Crotalus Adamanteus) named Doyle. While snakes are not everyone's first choice as a pet, for me it is a passion. Some of the most stunning, yet misunderstood animals on the planet are snakes. My photography aims to prove these animals are beautiful and need protection. The Eastern Diamondback is up for consideration to be added to the Endangered Species Act.
