This beautiful pink- or salmon-colored rattlesnake lives in the Grand Canyon region of Arizona as well as parts of Utah. Rattlesnakes are a very important part of our ecosystems. The favorite food of many of the larger species are crop-destroying rodents. So these snakes are very helpful to farmers and ranchers.
