Lifelike, detailed figurine of a Rattlesnake, part of the Schleich Wildlife Collection! This Schleich snake figurine has been meticulously hand-painted and is equipped with the Schleich tag bearing the red S, symbol for high quality and compliancy with all relevant safety regulations. Fun facts: Rattlesnakes make a rattling noise before they attack. Rattlesnakes have a rattle of rings on their tail. If they feel threatened, they move it quickly back and forth, 50-60 times per second. The hollow rings rattle against each other and make a fearsome noise. The snake wants to express: "Warning, I'm dangerous, stay away from me." Their venom is so strong that even a gram of it would kill thousands of mice. Therefore, it is also one of the most poisonous snakes in the world. The largest of its kind is the diamond rattlesnake with up to 2.4 m length and 4.5 kg in weight.
