Mapapie Balsain, Bothrops atrox (Family Viperidae)

The Trinidad population of Bothrops cf. atrox is in need of systematic reassessment. It is a member of a widespread and trans-Andean species complex. It ranges from Yucatan southward through Middle America to the Pacific versant of Colombia and Ecuador and across northern Venezuela to the Orinoco River and occurs on Trinidad. This snake is a serious threat to human health should they be bitten.
