(dramatic music) – I’m Coyote Peterson, and
right now I am face to face with the deadliest
rattlesnake in the world. Dancin’ with a
Mohave rattlesnake. This is one dangerous
dance, my friends. (intense instrumental music) (roar) The heart of rattlesnake
territory is truly Arizona which is home to 13
different species, more than any other state. Tonight we’re out in
the Sonoran Desert and the temperature
is absolutely perfect
to find snakes. I got my snake hook ready. We’re gonna head out there
and see what we can find. The rattlesnake specifically has taken an unbelievable
amount of negative press. Holy moly, okay,
don’t get any closer. Probably because if
startled or provoked they can inflict a very painful and potentially
lethal venomous bite. Check this out. This environment is absolutely
perfect for finding snakes. You can see how dry
and arid all this is. (excited gasp) I just saw it. Look at that, ya got
some kangaroo rats runnin’ around over here. Now, that is a great sign
that you’re gonna find snakes. Where there are rats, there are definitely
going to be snakes. Okay, I got him. (happy instrumental music) I’m gonna be as
gentle as possible. I do have him by the
scruff of his neck, which is okay to
handle them like that. Look at that cute
little bushy tail. How adorable this that? And these big hind feet, and that’s how they move so
quickly through the desert. Look, he’s holdin’ on to his
toe right now, he’s so scared. This is proof that
not everything out
there in the desert is covered in
scales and stingers. You better be careful
out there, buddy. if I can catch you, ya better believe that
a rattlesnake can. Alright, I’m gonna
let him go, you ready? Hang around in the vicinity
of kangaroo rats long enough and you are almost certain
to come across a rattlesnake. Got a snake right here. Snake, snake, snake. Western Diamondback,
come up slow. – [Voiceover] I see his tail. (eerie music and rattling) – That is a Western Diamondback. Okay, he’s rattling. Wait a minute, that is
not a Western Diamondback that is a Mohave rattlesnake. This situation just
went from dangerous to extremely dangerous. Okay, he’s kinda
tucked back in higher by this barrel cactus. Mark, go ahead and come
around on this side. Keep your distance back. – [Voiceover] Incredible. – [Coyote] That is the
most venomous rattlesnake in the world right there. He’s gettin’ ready
to go, okay, hold on. I’m gonna try to work him
up into this clearing here. – [Voiceover] Right over here. – Go ahead and come into
this open area here. (rattling) Now he’s rattling. (excited exclamation) Dancin’ with a
Mohave rattlesnake. This is one dangerous
dance, my friends. Alright, now we’ve got
him out in the open. Keep your distance,
keep your distance. This is a very
dangerous situation. We are now talking about the
most venomous rattlesnake in the United States right here. Let me see if I can just
get him to calm down. Holy cow, alright,
my heart is racing. Mark, keep your
distance, right there. We’ve got the snake calm,
ya got an okay shot on him? – [Voiceover] Yeah, decent. – These snakes can
strike incredibly far. I’m gonna keep him
still if I can. They will actually lunge two thirds of the
length of their body. Now, the way I was able to
tell that this was a Mohave and not a Western Diamondback, they’re so easy to confuse, is that the white banding
on the tail, the white bands are thicker than
the black bands. And you can kinda see
once the light is on him he has a slight greenish tinge. Can you see that? Now, people often confuse
this for Western Diamondback because you see the
patterning on its back looks just like diamonds. They’re a little
more oval in shape. When I walked up
on it I thought, “Yes, sweet, a
Western Diamondback,” until I saw that
tail (quick sigh) and realized It’s a Mohave,
the most dangerous rattlesnake that’s out here in
the Sonoran Desert. It’s just (exhales) it is nerve wracking. Hold on, he’s startin’ to move. (rattling and dramatic music) – [Voiceover] You
can hear his rattle. – I can hear his rattle. I see he’s just got a
couple a little buttons. Now he is not, you’ll
notice he’s not striking. This is good. Now, snakes do not want
to use their venom. Striking and biting is
definitely a last resort. Hold on, hold on. (intense music builds) – [Voiceover] Oh geez. – [Coyote] Look out! – [Voiceover] Talk about
what just happened, how it happened. – Okay, so just like
that the snake decided, “Okay, I’m gonna move,” and
he’s getting a little agitated. They are so incredibly strong. And as soon as he decides,
“Okay, I’m outta here,” it’s really, really difficult to get him to curl
back up like this. (rattling) See that, he’s
puffin’ up his body. He’s gettin’ ready to strike. Now, a snake will only strike if it feels like that’s its
last resort for escaping. There ya go, there ya
go, calm down, stay calm. There ya go, buddy, alright. (exhales) My heart is goin’
about a million miles
a second right now. – [Voiceover] That
one made me nervous. He was like darting
right at the camera. – [Coyote] Were you
recording that whole time? – [Voiceover] I tried to. I don’t know, I might
have turned it off. – Alright, Mark you can probably
come around this way now real slowly, go slow, go slow. (rattling) Alright, keep rolling,
it’s okay, go very slow. He can sense that you guys are
comin’ around his back side. Stay calm, wow. This is about as close as
i wanna get to this snake. Let’s talk about
its venom toxicity. Now the Mohave rattlesnake
has two different venom types depending on what region
the snake is living in. I cannot tell just
looking at the snake whether or not he has
type A or type B venom. The type A venom is a
much stronger neurotoxin. Type B is more hemotoxic. Either way, you get
bitten by this snake its venom load, off the charts. Ya get attacked by this snake, ya wanna get to the
hospital immediately. Their venom has almost
10 times the toxicity of the Western
Diamondback rattlesnake. Now you guys have seen me
capture the Eastern Diamondback, the Western Diamondback,
Sidewinders, and a lot of times
I do head snakes and show you their fangs. This snake, I just feel
is far too dangerous to do that with. All rattlesnake species
are potentially deadly but because this is the most
toxic rattlesnake in the world I’m even more nervous. And the fact that I can’t tell
whether or not it has type A or type B venom really makes
me wanna just keep my distance from this snake, I don’t
wanna try to handle it, don’t wanna head it,
it commands respect. and that is exactly what
we’re going to give it. (rattling) What an intense encounter. Getting face to face with
the most venomous rattlesnake in the world. I’m Coyote Peterson. Be brave, stay wild. We’ll see ya on
the next adventure. (rattling) If you thought that
was one wild adventure, check out the time
I stumbled upon a double-fanged
Western Diamondback. And don’t forget, subscribe
to join me and the crew on this season of
Breaking Trail. Priority number
one, guys is safety. I wanna get that
snake out of there. I wanna be as careful as I can. (growling and hoots)

    At 2:48 you changed from "most venomous rattler in world…" to "most venomous in USA" which is a bit better but then back to "in the world" at 6:28. Rattlers are not found all over the world – only in north & south America. Your entire presentation is unnecessarily dramatic and sensationalist. In any case, the "most venomous" rattler anywhere is the one that just bit you.

    Me and my family went hiking by a trail and we saw giant ants crawl underneath a log. My brother and I lifted the log to show everyone else the giant ants we found and on his end was a Northern Mojave Rattlesnake. He yelled "Ahh! That's literally my worst nightmare!". Lucky the Rattlesnake was facing away from him but his hand was inches away from the snake. Lesson learned. Don't go overturning logs in nature.
