Information about the Tropical Rattlesnake:
The Tropical Rattlesnake - also called the South American Rattlesnake - is a venomous pit viper species found in various environments throughout much of South America, with the exception of Ecuador and Chile. The most widely distributed member of its genus this species poses a serious medical problem in many parts of its range. The snake can grow to a length of almost 5 feet (1.5 m) although it can grow larger than this. This snake is also found on some islands in the Caribbean, including Morro de la Iguana, Tamarindo and Aruba. It prefers savanna, and various types of scrubland, as well as seasonal forests in the northwest of Venezuela. In the Chaco region of Paraguay, it is found in the drier, sandier areas. Bites from this snake are very serious and can result in impaired vision or complete blindness, auditory disorders, paralysis of the peripheral muscles, especially of the neck, which becomes so limp as to appear broken, and eventually life-threatening respiratory paralysis.
