Why Snakes Are Blind. Rattlesnakes, as well as other spe cies of the snake family, are blind three, sometimes four, times a year. As a rule they shed their skins in the spring, midsummer, and fall, during which time there is a short period of a few days in which they are more or less blind, causing them to be more dangerous. When they are shedding their skins they also shed the eye covering, thus causing blindness. 6t Nicholas. :'a- . 1 an ir st e'lun at'-rd for the money m 1 !le ?n! durability.
