We can easily say that rattlesnakes are one of the most sophisticated creatures in the world! Well YES, and they have their tails to prove that fact.
According to the experts, these defense mechanisms are just highly sophisticated warning signals, which makes rattlesnakes extremely terrifying.
The noises that they generate ward off predators. Their tails rattle about 50 times per second, and they can keep that up for hours on end if necessary.
Did you know that the rattles are made of keratin? The answer is yes, and every time snakes molt, their tails get a bit longer. When rattlesnakes travel, they keep their tails up to avoid damaging them, since they rely on those noisemakers for survival.
