There are 32 known species of the Rattlesnake. They all look a little bit different, but all have a triangular shaped head and a rattle at the end of their tail.
Different Rattlesnake species have different patterns on their skin that vary in color. The color of a Rattlesnake's skin also allows it to blend in well to its surroundings. This ability is called "camouflaging."
