This is my first year to build my own props and it seems I could use some advice. I am building an old west cemetery theme and would really like to try a "realistic" striking rattlesnake. I need some ideas for getting him to strike and then recoil. Electric? Pneumatic? I have searched everywhere and the only one I can find is a behemoth that madmax built around a standing dummy. If anyone can help me it would be greatly appreciated.
