Description

Urban legends and sensational films have contributed to the rattlesnake's reputation as a creature to be feared and killed. Yet these creatures are a marvel of evolution, worthy of the fascination they engender but deserving of a more knowledgeable audience. In this class, you will learn what role these serpents play in the overall ecological picture and how the welfare of the species intersects with human interests, the impact they have had on culture from Hopi snake dances to rattlesnake round-ups, and many other fun and interesting facts.
