As you rustle across the long grass and weeds you pause briefly. A noise catches your attention from the nearby rocks. As the sun beats down you hear the tell-tale rattle. A warning like few others in nature. It makes you aware of the near by danger of the frightening, deadly Rattle Snake waiting and declaring its presence to you, the intruder. The snake enjoys the treat of the sun's warmth far more than it fears you. But you know to respect the snakes decision and change the direction of your continued trudging. Later, however, you'll be the one in charge when you make some of these great kid's snake crafts and re-live your slithering adventures.
