In Reply to: Crotalus ruber in Los Angeles County? posted by Bob Hadady on April 07, 2003 at 21:05:14:

I am doing some research on rattlesnakes and I have a few books that say there are Crotalus ruber in Los Angeles County. There is a old record for one found near Whittier. If these snakes are still in Los Angeles County, they would be in the southeast corner in the Puente Hills or San Jose Hills. These hills are on the edge of the Santa Ana Mountains in Orange County which have Crotalus ruber. Has anyone heard of Crotalus ruber in Los Angeles County? Thanks for any information.

I know that the USGS guide has some info on C. ruber. Its study area includes LA County, so this might be of some use to you.

The guide says this about the snake: "This is a species in decline, with increasing interest in its behaviors and ranges, sightings should be verified and recorded."
