Eastern Massasauga snake photograph
Description: The Eastern Massasauga rattlesnake, Sistrurus catenatus catenatus, lives in wetland areas in much of northern and central Ohio. Its name comes from the Chippewa Indian word meaning "great river mouth." The snake is highly venomous, although humans rarely die from Eastern Massasauga bites due to the animal's small teeth. It is considered an endangered species. The photographs measure 3" x 3" (7.62 x 7.62 cm). View on Ohio Memory.
