This is in contrast to the western rattlesnake, Crotalus viridis, the western diamondback rattlesnake, Crotalus atrox, the Mojave rattlesnake, Crotalus scutulatus and the tiger rattlesnake, Crotalus tigris in which the major period of spermiogenesis occurs in summer-autnumn (Aldridge 1979a, Jacob et al.
Testicular cycles of other North American rattlesnakes (Crotalus viridis, Crotalus tigris, Crotalus molossus; Aldridge 1979b, Goldberg 1999a; 1999b) also appear to fit this pattern.
molossus appeared similar to that of Crotalus viridis and Crotalus tigris in which spermiogenesis began in late spring and continued into autumn (Aldridge 1979a, Goldberg 1999).
Biennial reproductive cycles have been reported for other North American rattlesnakes: Rahn (1942) for Crotalus viridis, Tinkle (1962) for Crotalus atrox and Goldberg (1999) for Crotalus tigris. However, there can be variation in the female cycle between different rattlesnake populations of the same species with annual, biennial, triennial or even quadraennial cycles occurring (see Ernst 1992; Fitch & Pisani 1993).
