True Grit Rattlesnakes - How True is it?

Western Diamondback Rattlesnake


The other day National Geographic contacted regarding the veracity of the rattlesnake scenes in the new movie, True Grit. Terry's interview is posted on the National Geographic blog.

As you know, we like to present the truth about reptiles and Terry doesn't pull any punches on this one, even if it is a good movie. Visit the link below to read the interview.
