Well, from the shape of its head, it isn't a viper. I recommend you just turn it loose and let it do its own hunting.

"Triangular" head (most snakes have) and pattern look sort of like.
Baby snakes could look like that and not be rattlers.
Look for little rattles and "nine large scales on top of the head".
The "dusky" pygmy rattlesnake has lighter color and less red (like this one).
They seem to be common.
If you call some "animal removal" or "snake removal" company, they will take it to the serpentarium.
Dusky Pigmy Rattlesnake
The top of the triangular shaped head is covered with 9 large scales. The body color is light to dark gray. A longitudinal row of black or charcoal, transverse blotches disrupts a reddish brown stripe running down the middle of the back. Dark spots on the side line up with the blotches.
