We spend just under a week in Tucson, Arizona for some required airplane maintenance recently. While there, we decided to visit the Saguaro National Park. While there we did a hike that took us along a dry riverbed where we encountered a pair of Western Diamondback Rattlesnakes fighting for dominance.
Both of us tried to shoot some video, but I was too dumb to use my camera properly. Thankfully, the Canon SD800 that Kathleen was carrying worked just fine. Here’s the video.
The park rangers were very excited when we returned with copies of that video. Apparently it’s not that common to see a pair of snakes dueling out in the open like that.
