Did you know….

Question:

Anton asked me today, what makes the rattle on a rattlesnake rattle. I don’t know, I didn’t have a clue….without looking it up, do you know?

Answer:

A rattle snake is born with a button on his tail and they lose there skin up to for times a year and each time it leaves just a bit of skin on the snake. After a while these pieces of skin add up and since they are dried they brush against each other making the rattling noise.

Now isn’t that cool.
