Rattlesnakes are some of the biggest badasses in the snake world. Not only do they sit up and hiss, but they will totally play their all natural maracas for you just before biting you to death. Here in the Southwest we both revile and revere rattlesnakes. If you didn’t already know that we are unnaturally fascinated by these creatures, the following 15 products should prove it to you. Here are 15 unique items that are made from rattlesnakes. Some of them you can actually buy. No kidding.
