The subspecies of the South American rattlesnake, Crotalus durissus are classified according to their external morphological features and geographical distribution. We have determined some biological activities of C. durissus cascavella, C. durissus collilineatus and C. durissus terrificus venoms. C. durissus terrificus had a significantly higher clotting activity on bovine plasma and fibrinogen, human fibrinogen and rabbit plasma. C. durissus cascavella presented a statistically higher… CONTINUE READING
