The Campbell's rattlesnake can be found in the Trans-Mexican Volcanic Belt, localled called the Sierra Nevada, in open rocky areas nearby montane forests at middle to high elevations. It likely feeds on small mammals and lizards.
Fun fact: The Campbell's rattlesnake was only recently described in 2014 from museum specimens, so we know little about its unique ecology and biology which differs it from similar nearby rattlesnake species.
