(Crotalus atrox)

The main puppet in the rattlesnake package is the striking rattler. It's best seen in the movie so you can get and idea of what it does. Real actors can be struck on cue when you need a full body shot of the actor with their face showing. We also have a lighting stand-in, throw or stunt snake, and a cable controlled 3/4 rattler which matches the striker. This puppet can be used to mimic a live rattler that a person may be holding or doing close-up strikes. It has delicate body movement via cable and a moving mouth with retractable fangs and realistic tongue flicker. All snakes are based on a 5' long Diamondback. Available for rental as a complete package or as individual elements needed to achieve the desired effect.
