CSC – Project NOAH Fun Fact



Project Noah
Fun Fact: The timber rattlesnake was one of the first symbols of the United States of America. Ben Franklin once wrote of the rattlesnake, “I recollected that her eye excelled in brightness, that of any other animal, and that she has no eye-lids. She may therefore be esteemed an emblem of vigilance. She never begins an attack, nor, when once engaged, ever surrenders: She is therefore an emblem of magnanimity and true courage.”
