The rings on a rattlesnake do not
tell exactly the age of the RDake. The
biological survey says that the rattle-
snake acquires from two to fonr rings
a year, nsnally three. Under normal
conditions one ring is added each time
the snake sheds its skin. The yonng
rattler Is provided with a single but-
ton at birth, and within a few days It
sheds its skin and commences feeding
In about two months It sheds its skin
for the second time and then the first
ring »t the rattle Is uncovered or
added. This has been growing nnder
the old skin, and its pressure was ap
parent in the swollen appearance of
the tail at the base of the orlginnl
button. The last seven or eight ver-
tebrae fuse together shortly after birth
and form a composite hone known as
the “shaker," and It is around this
hone that each cap or ring of the rattle

In regard to the materials used by
humming birds In constructing their
nesta, I wish to any that no hair or
feathers are ever used. The nests are
built of lichens and attached to the
limb which Is as nearly as possible the
exnct color of the lichens used, hence
the difficulty in locating the nests of
humming birds with the human eyes.
The nest Is never hidden but merely
cunningly camouflaged. — Pathfinder
