The northern California rattlesnake species is the northern Pacific rattlesnake. Rattlesnakes are dangerous if provoked; however, they also provide humans with a tremendous service in that they eat rodents, other reptiles, and insects. Generally not aggressive, a rattlesnake can strike when threatened or deliberately provoked, but given room they will retreat. Most snake bites occur when a rattlesnake is handled or accidentally touched by someone.  The California Poison Control Center notes that rattlesnakes account for more than 800 bites each year with one to two deaths.
