I've recently come across several Crotalus viridis rescued by a local humane society (Northern CA) from some irresponsible owners. They're desparate to place these critters. I've told them I'd be glad to take them for now ( I do have hots experience), but I do want to place them eventually with someone else who would want them long-term. I'm trying to be responsible and not release them back into the wild, as no one knows the exact location they were caught (and they've been captive for a long time). Any suggestions as to how to go about this other than contacting the local herp society? Any responsible, rattler-oriented websites out there? Living museums, nature centers? Thanks.
