I had always thought Bothrops woulda been like most Crotalus in that both sexes average about the same size with the males getting a tad bit larger. You learn something new everyday!
Thanks for the tid bit of info WW!
All the best,
: ... most Bothrops also show combat behaviour in captivity, and yet, females are massively larger than males.
: I guess it also partly depends on just how important combat actually is in real life for these snakes.
