Let the rattlesnake skin soak in the tanning solution (equal parts distilled water, isopropyl alcohol, glycerin) for six days. Dried it off a bit with some paper towel and stretched and pinned it (scales down) to an old chunk of wood to dry in the shade. Should only take a couple of days with our high temperatures and low humidity.

You make this look pretty
Darn easy, like the worst is being suddenly aware of the snake. I lived in Florida, coral snake fell on my wrist from upper screen door,I flipped it off, but of course the darned snake ended up inside the house. I casually (!) moved the snake back and out the door.

Rattlesnakes always catch me off guard since I only see 1 or 2 a year. If one ever got inside my house, I would probably move.

I mentioned before that a big Diamond Back Rattler lived under my house one winter and I could hear it thumping around under the floorboards. In the spring I found a young fellow from Ohio who needed extra cash so he went under the house to repair the insulation that the snake had disturbed and was so excited to find the shed skin from the snake and asked if he could keep it. The snake had left for good, then. When they built the house in back I heard the men say they saw a snake and shot it.

I once found a shed rattlesnake skin under the bed in our Mahan Hunt Cabin! From then on - we religiously set out mothballs & rat poison in our cabin before we leave for home. Haven't seen a rattlesnake nor shed skin since we started our war against the mice & rats! Takes a little time to air things out when we return each year. But I sleep better knowing rattlesnakes don't use our cabin for their rodent hunting!
