It's that time of year...rattlers are coming out of hibernation. Wherever you are please be watchfull. Listen to your pets, they know when something isn't right. My dog had this one pinned out in our yard this afternoon. She didn't go near it, but new [sic] it wasn't right.(Warn Uncle Joe, cuz he's a-moving kind of slow.)
The attached photo was a picture of a bullsnake, non-venomous and not a threat unless you are a mouse.
Although they have no rattles, bullsnakes will vibrate their tails as a threat display. This produces such reactions from Homo sapiens as this from the same Facebook post:
