I'm not a snake expert but it sure looks like a timber rattler to me. Didn't know they could be found as far west as Mason.

The black tail makes me think Timber rattler as well, but the few I've seen had different markings on their back...but they were also farther east in freeston co.

I'd second this thought. Especially with the solid dark tail??

That is an easy one with that black bandit face and black tail. It's a black tailed rattlesnake.

You beat me to it. It's a northern black tailed rattlesnake. What a beauty too.

Yup....timbers have a copper stripe down their back and don't have a diamond pattern on their back..... Beautiful looking blacktail! One of 13 species of rattlesnakes native to Texas!..
cheers
