If you are planning on going hiking or camping this Memorial Day weekend be aware of your surroundings.

A man in western Montana, in Ravalli County, took a slow-motion video of a rattlesnake striking.

Even though he did this on purpose you should be aware of rattlesnakes coming out of their dens due to the nice weather in the surrounding areas of Bozeman.

Rattlesnakes are found in many areas around Bozeman, including around Livingston, Manhattan and Three Forks.

Be careful out there and have fun.
