The Eastern Timber Rattlesnake is native to New Hampshire. It’s habitat is from the Massachusetts border up to the White Mountains. According to NH Fish and Game they are endangered and are labeled “Critically Imperiled” (1,000 or less). In a recent episode of North Woods Law a NH Fish and Game Officer said there were probably 50 or so left in New Hampshire. Often mistaken for Milk Snakes or Black Racers, the Timber Rattler prefers south-facing hillsides in wooded areas that are exposed to an abundance of sunlight. It is not known if one has ever been sighted in the Litch.
