Crotalus draconis? by beastofoblivion Crotalus draconis? by beastofoblivion

My very last minute submission to the Tiny Dragons art book. This little one is based on the young western diamondback rattlesnake I encountered field herping a few weeks ago. 

Note to self: do not start projects the night before a deadline.

If I found a feathery winged rattlesnake, I'd dub it Crotalus quetzalcoatlus (can species share names with a genus?). This little guy looks so deadly cute.

I always loved rattlesnakes. Something about big huffy derps that banked on bigger things not calling their bluffs seemed endearing to me. Loved all the ones that I've worked with.

I love the shine on the wings and the level of depth on the scales. The pose is super fun but stays true to the snake you based it off of. Dangerous but I still want to pick it up and put it on my shoulder. :D
