I arrived in Las Vegas the night of April 1st. It was 88 degrees upon my arrival - twice the temperature of the Greater Cleveland Area where I came from. I decided to try my hand at roadhunting.

mojave rattlesnake First Find
I found my first snake of 2011 that night, a Mojave Rattlesnake. It turned out that medium-sized Mojaves were somewhat common for the first two days of the trip, before the temperature started to drop.

I also found a little Longnose Snake on that first night. I photographed it on the following day.
