Friday Finds: Rattles

 

Audrey found a rattlesnake’s rattle while cleaning brush for the Mardi Gras  party our community had recently and she gave it to Mitchell.

 

We’ve been told that a rattle snake gets a new button on its tail for each year it survives.  But really its a new button for each time it sheds its skin.  For some snakes that’s a yearly event.  For others they might shed a couple of times annually, thus collecting more buttons like badges of honour.
