diamondback rattler You're fighting a diamondback rattler

Well he's in the sand, and he'll bite your hand, and he's full of poison 'cause he wants to be a diamondback rattler. Diamondback rattler...

RE: Madness at the Mine

What does a rattlesnake get out of biting you? Does it just do it for the hell of it? I mean, if biting was really important, you'd think it wouldn't warn you about it by rattling first.

RE: Help! Desperados!

The local rattlesnakes have learned to move very carefully without rattling, so they can sneak up on the mountain lions that are their only source of food. A mountain lion is a lot of food for a rattlesnake, so they've gotten really sick of it; upon seeing you, this one has gone totally crazy and is rattling up a storm.

RE: Wagon Train Escort Wanted

Ordinarily, you could just ignore a rattlesnake in this situation. A rattlesnake knows better than to attack something as large as a horse (or a wagon train), after all. However, it's a long ride, and you're getting pretty bored.

Hit Message(s):

The rattler gives you a nasty bite on the <head>. Really, any snake bite on the <forehead> is going to be a nasty one. Ooh! Ooh! Ouch! Ow!

The rattler bites you on the <thigh>, which swells up like a balloon -- presumably to make it easier to bite a second time. Ooh! Eek! Eek! Ouch!

The rattler rattles at you, and then bites you. Dangit, weren't you paying attention? Eek! Oof! Ugh! Ow!

Critical Hit Message:

The rattler bites you and fills you up with venom without any warning at all! Come on man, isn't that what the rattle is for? (CRITICAL HIT!) Ouch! Ow! Oof! Ooh!

Miss Message(s):

The rattler starts to bite you, then realizes it forgot to rattle first.

The rattler tries to bite you on the <head>, but the rattle kind of gives away the game.

The rattler tries to bite you, but you've been bitten before, and are therefore shy.

Fumble Message:

The rattler rattles its rattle at you. (FUMBLE!)
