Unlike some other species, which may lay eggs, the female Southern Pacific Rattlesnake delivers eight or ten live young about three months after mating. The young, each six to ten inches in length, are born with fangs, with each newborn ready to defend itself and hunt prey. Young snakes leave the mother in short order, becoming independent, though they may follow the mother's scent to a wintering den that may be used for many generations. In the wild, the snake may live for one or two decades.
