History (Our Story)

   This exhibition began it's existence as a semi- permanent exhibition at Fort Hays State University's Sternberg Museum of Natural History in Hays, KS.

Through Natural Wonders Studios we are making "Rattlerssss    From Fear... to Fascination"available for lease as a temporary, traveling exhibition to museums, zoos, and any other educational institutions who are interested.

What Is Included

     This museum exhibition contains live specimen of all 24 species of U.S. rattlesnakes. 22 of these will be displayed at one time. This is due to the fact that in the past few years 2 species have been split off from the original 22 species. We will be displaying 1 of the 2 Black-Tailed Rattlesnakes and 1 of the 2 Massassauga Rattlesnakes since they look very similar. We do however talk about the different variations and show images af the 2 altreantes that are not on display at the time. 

 All of the snakes are divided into 6  groups throughout the exhibit:
