not to mention 2 things, snakes released off of their home range have very low survival rates, and a rattler overload is impossible in the southwest the snakes natural prey does not exsist in large enough numbers to support any great increase in rattler population, if double the population of rattlers survive one years the number of prey surviving will in a large population reduce by that amount creating a vicious circle the keeps natural populations under control, mostly man and his accompaning animals like rats, cattle, cats, dogs, and many others that do and are expected to survive even when exceeding the lands ability to support them.
