Rattlesnakes are native to North and South America. They are venomous; their venom is hemotoxic, meaning that it can destroy tissue, cause necrosis, and coagulopathy. The rattlesnake gets its name from the rattle that grows from end of the tail. They use the rattle to warn that they are about to strike. The food they eat are mostly small animals like rodents and birds.
