Rattlesnake identifications

Hi all,

The boys and I were on a walk in Rose Canyon here in San Diego and we came across this rattlesnake. Itís was big and it was all black with white rings. Problem is, we canít seem to ID it. It looks like a king snake but it clearly has a rattle. Anyone know what species of rattlesnake this is? Thanks!

There is no way to identify it without a picture. Please post one if you have it.

Was it a Southern Pacific Rattlesnake? I know those are pretty common out there.

Hi,

Sorry for the delay. I had to go through a waiting period before I could post. I had originally included a picture but it disappeared after my post was approved. I have a picture of the snake hosted up on Photobucket, but when I try to post it here, it gives me the following error:

"Post denied. New posts are limited by number of URLs it may contain and checked if it doesn't contain forbidden words."

Sorry. Very frustrating.

The snake is black with white rings up and down the length of it's body. I looks very much like a king snake but it clearly has a rattle. Oddly, I can't find any rattlesnakes that look anything like this.

OK. Here it is. It looks like no other rattlesnake I've ever seen. What do you think?
