Rattlesnake Dentistry

Among my many weird dreams lately, last night I dreamt about rattlesnakes. I wouldn't say we were necessarily hunting them, but we were walking around some popular trails and clearing them from the paths.

Better yet, we were using our 2yo daughter to lure them out. Obviously. And this was something totally normal to do. Because clearly rattlesnakes just omg looooove little toddlers. There was some sort of rattlesnake guru guy with us as well.

He would pick up a rattlesnake, hold its head so its teeth showed, and remove overgrown teeth. Like rattlesnakes teeth don't naturally fall out when they are bad? Weird.  Yep, he'd just flick the old tooth off and a new, shorter, better tooth would be right below it.

So to sum up: rattlesnake searching with toddlerbait, philanthropic snakeman, fewer overgrown snake teeth.

Naturally I turned to the internet to decipher this dream. Well according to, rattlesnakes in dreams represent the passage of time. And, depending the context, teeth can represent power. So removing teeth effectively represent the loss of power.... I guess.

Take that time, you have now power against me. That's all for now. Better end here because sitting in this position hurts my old lady back.

Here's quote from another dream dictionary website

To dream of a rattlesnake represents people or situations that warn you about unpleasant consequences if you don't co-operate. It could also represent your attempt to threaten someone else with an undesirable course of action if they continue doing something you don't like.

Example: A woman dreamed of a rattlesnake when she was receiving threats from lawyers about losing custody of her child.
