Should you pet a rattle snake?

Unless you want to die a painful death do not pet a rattle snake. They will generally run away from what they perceive as danger but if they feel cornered they will defend themselves. If you do get bitten do your best to relax and slow your heart rate so the venom doesn't travel as fast through the bloodstream. Get to the hospital as fast as you can, hopefully they have anti-venom. If you survive expect to lose that area of your body to decay.
