Edgar the Diamondback Rattlesnake

If you’re a snake or reptile fan you know of Edgar.

The big, beautiful, albino, eastern diamondback rattlesnake.
The gentle giant 21-year old, 7’4” rattler who clocked in at more than 19 lbs.
The snake bigger than some bathtubs whose unique size and coloration did more to help people appreciate the species than any book, lecture, seminar, or even reptile show.

And while Edgar is no longer with us, he can still help us! Our hope is to professionally preserve him so he can continue to teach and help people to better understand this unique species.

And we’re hoping you can help us reach that hope with your much-appreciated donation and to help us spread the word to any others who may want to help.

Thank you for your support in keeping Edgar’s legacy alive.
