Dr. Bruce S. Levine, veterinarian at the Bird and Exotic Animal Clinic of Orange County, said that rattlesnakes don't always have a rattle.
Hikers and campers should keep an eye out for the snakes, because the rattling sound may not always be heard.
Dr. Levine said young rattlesnakes might not have a rattle yet because the rattle grows in size when the snakes shed their skin, and adult rattlesnakes can even lose their rattles on occasion.
