There are approximately 65 species of
rattlesnakes, and they are all found only in the Americas. Rattlesnakes account
for most of the snake bites in the Americas, and 82% of the deaths from snake
bites. However, if bites from a rattlesnake are promptly treated, they are
rarely fatal. Rattlesnakes do not usually bite unless they are provoked.
