The Mojave and Diamondback rattle snake are very similar in appearance. One way to tell the deference however, is to look at the markings running down the snakes. The Diamondback has marks running all the way down the snake. While the Mojaves marks fade the last third of the snake.

The snake has brown diamonds down its back outlined by white scales, white and black rings at the end of its tail and a light diagonal stripe behind their eyes.

Based on it's pattern they are often confused with the Western Rattlesnake. However their greenish tinge and a diagonal light stripe behind their eyes,which does not touch the eye, gives them their distinct look. Also with 2-3 enlarged scales on the top of their head between their eyes.
