Annotation Notes
07/11/2001 Joe Newsome  taxon changed Crotalus atrox (Western Diamondback Rattlesnake) Crotalus ruber (Red Diamond Rattlesnake)
This is a Red diamond rattlesnake. The reddish color is the primary identifier. The location of "Baja" is also a clue since C. atrox is only found in the extreme NE corner while C. ruber is on the entire penninsula
