    Very pretty! Sort of reminds me of pygmy rattlers.
    I wonder how many get killed due to that.

    I would think quite a few, not only due to looks but even hatchlings have a very aggressive act they put on. Hissing and puffing, all in all acting very much like a rattlesnake to the point of how they coil their tail in the same manner as a rattle snake and then make a hiss that sounds almost the same. I'm sure it doesn't just fool predators but also the unknowing human that thinks he's come across something a lot more dangerous than it is.

    Beautiful Titus! The ones in our yard "hood up" and, if that doesn't work, play dead. I have heard that they can even make a couple of drops of blood dribble from their mouths! I haven't seen that though.;)
