Yes, we do have Rattlers in our neighborhood! Two were found dead on Four Lake Drive near the bridge in August 2016
Michigan's only venomous snake is a rare sight for most state residents. Historically, they could be found in a variety of wetlands and nearby upland woods throughout the lower peninsula. During the late spring, these snakes move from their winter hibernation sites, such as crayfish chimneys and other small mammal burrows in swamps and marshlands, to hunt on the drier upland sites - likely in search of mice and voles, their favorite food.
Special Concern, it is protected by the State of Michigan and is a candidate for federal listing
Entire Lower Peninsula,. Although once common, populations may be declining due to loss of wetland habitats and human harassment.
During spring, Massasaugas use open shallow wetlands or shrub swamps. They can be found in crayfish towers or small animal burrows which are adjacent to drier upland open shrub forest sites. During summer, Massasaugas move upland to drier areas. Look for them "sunning" in open fields, grassy meadows or farmed sites.
Sluggish, slow moving snake. It may strike if threatened.
Eastern Massasauga rattlesnakes eat small mammals, amphibians and insects. The Massasaugas are eaten by eagles, herons and some mammals.
Massasaugas have thick bodies with colors that range from gray, grayish brown or brown. Its back has large dark brown blotches with smaller lighter brown patches on its sides. Young Massasaugas are similarly marked with brighter coloration.
This snake has a wide triangular head and eyes with slit shaped pupils.
Adults can be 18" to 30" in length.
Young Massasaugas have small yellow buttons or "rattles" at the tip of their tail. Adult "rattles" are grayish yellow, like pieces of corn kernels, on top of dark rings.
Snakes may bite to protect themselves.
