A ese ejemplar lo encontramos con vida y herido en la carretera Escarsega sabancuy, una persona que transitaba en bicicleta le dio un machetazo ya que lo consideran una especie peligrosa y ellos trabajan en la zona y no quieren poner en riesgo su vida, nos comento que todas las personas de la comunidad si llegan a ver un ejemplar de esta especie lo matan inmediatamente como sucedió en este caso.

Description from Wikipedia

Crotalus is a genus of venomous pit vipers found only in the Americas from southern Canada to northern Argentina. The name is derived from the Greek word krotalon, which means "rattle" or "castanet", and refers to the rattle on the end of the tail which makes this group (genera Crotalus and Sistrurus) so distinctive. 32 species are currently recognized.

No range data available.
