It was 110 degrees at this location. I didn't see any "guard dogs". If there were any they were probably not in any mood to attack anyone. Rattle Snakes get so lethargic in this heat that they often don't rattle before they strike. The snake basically says, "It's so dang hot out here I am not even going to bother rattling before I bite this dude on the leg." lol

    Neat shot.. I think there are a lot of these signs around sans the dog, to give intruders a reason to pause.. except for the rattlers, of course, lol.

    @Richard. I kept looking beyond the fence expecting to see some ravenous, rabies infected pit pull to come dashing our from underneath the brush but it never happened. Although a couple of hill billies drove up in their old beat up pick up truck, stopped and stared at me which was scarier that any dog...I had flashbacks to the movie Deliverance so, I got in my car and left.
