Rattlesnakes, endangered worm and other stuff

I just read a report of a Massachusetts man being bitten by a Timber Rattlesnake. While out jogging a couple of years ago I found a dead and squashed rattler on the side of the road. Most people I've told that to have been pretty skeptical. Maybe now more people will believe me.

While looking for more information on timber Rattlers I found this comprehensive list of plants and animals offered protection by the state of Massachusetts. I was a bit stunned by the number of invertebrates on the list. I'd never heard of the Sunderland Spring Planarian, the Tidewater Mucket nor the Persius Duskywing.
