The Rattlesnake is a medium sized reptile found in deserts and badlands.
The Rattlesnake is a sandy beige color with a purple tongue.
Most of the time, the Rattlesnake is heard, not seen, since it produces a loud rattle warning sound when a potential predator is nearby. If one gets close enough to a Rattlesnake while it is rattling, the creature will become hostile and use its poisonous bite to defend itself. Rattlesnakes are the sworn enemy of Roadrunners, their most common predator.
If a Rattlesnake is slain, it has a chance to drop its rattle. These rattles can be brewed with Komodo Dragon Spit Bottles in order to create a foul, poisonous essence. Brewing this essence with Cave Centipede Leg can result in the coveted Potion of Poison Resistance.
