I just found this tiny skull on the beach. It looks like a rattlesnake? Can anyone provide an ID?

I can see how you thought skull, OP! Kind of a beautiful artifact no matter what it is. Nature....

I feel really dumb. I'm the one who asked. Of course it's a crab shell. It was just sitting so close to a stream mouth, and so close in size and shape to a rattle snake head, and white (rather than reddish or pinkish), that I didn't see the obvious. Thanks for clarifying. [I think I'll hide my identity this time...]

There is no such thing as a dumb question especially when you made the effort to answer it yourself first.

Definitely not a snake skull. Looks like a shed crab cuticle.

I think cycleboy is right. Doesn’t look hard enough to be a skull.

Belly of a crab.
