Crotalus Lepidus Klauberi Wall Sculpture. High in the mountains of southeastern Arizona, breathtaking granite outcrops soar into the sky, creating natural fortresses for the unique plants and animals that inhabit these beautiful heights. The Banded Rock Rattlesnake (Crotalus lepidus klauberi) is one of the many unique species that dwells in the crevices of the rocks, hunting lizards and small mammals, often unseen due to its incredible camouflage. This small-sized rattlesnake varies in color from gray, to pinks and greens, perfectly blending with the lichen-covered rocks where it lives. Sexually dimorphic in color, males are gray-green, whereas females are gray and pink. Along with these snakes and the many other creatures who dwell in these “Sky Islands,” the undefeated Apache Chief, Cochise, and the Chiricahua Apache people also used one of these mountains as their winter home and “Stronghold,” bravely defending it until peace was agreed upon in 1872 when the Chiricahua Indian reservation was established.
