    • Facts about the pygmy rattlesnake
      • The pygmy rattlesnake, given to its petite size, can be rarely spotted. Most of its time is spent hiding among leaf litter, burrows or other hiding places. Flatwoods, creeks, streams, lakes, sand hills, mixed forests of pine and hardwoods, scrub pinewoods, marshes, swamps, floodplains, longleaf pine-wiregrass forests and xeric uplands are the places which account for the pygmy rattlesnake habitat and for its sub species. Staying in well-hidden places, the snake is able to lay a well ambushed attack on prey such as lizard , frogs, birds, small mammals and insects.

      • The plant leaves would be food for the insects to eat and that will attract carnivorous animals to the leaf litter community.
      • When the animals die, th ei r dead body would make good nutrients for the plant
