Interestingly, the snake never rattled much even with all the spraying and prodding I did.
Rattlesnakes use their rattle to say, "Hey, I'm here and I'm not someone you want to f___ with.
By the time you hit him with the hose, that moment had passed and he was in total defensive mode.
Snakes, unless hunting or being attacked, are very shy and non aggressive animals. Glad to hear that there was a happy ending to the story for you and the snake.
