Den Sites

Timber rattlesnakes, along with several other species, are known to congregate (often in rock outcrops or other large underground refugia) during the winter months. These areas are often call den sites where snakes can remain safe and warm throughout the colder months. The snakes you see in this photo have just emerged from their den site in SW Georgia in late March. They have come out just far enough to gain the benefits of the sun-warmed rocks of a sink hole.
