Bushmaster Pit Viper Wiki?

What is a Bushmaster Pit Viper? I searched the web for a wiki article from wikipedia but there's nothing about it.
I think it's a snake. Can you guys explain what a Bushmaster Pit Viper is? Is there a wiki article about the snake? Please point me to the wiki post if there is one. I always get all the info from wikipedia.

The reason there is not a wiki post about the bushmaster pit viper is because that is not the scientific name.
The real name is Lachesis (genus).

The Bushmaster, lachesis muta muta is the biggest Pit Viper in the earth with a spiteful status as a “cruel dude”. The Bushmaster is a giant, thick-bodied & extremely poisonous snake with a triangularly formed head, 1 of nature’s caution signs that a snake is poisonous & supposedly lethal.

From the wiki page:

"Lachesis is a genus of venomous pitvipers found in the remote, forested areas in Central and South America. The generic name refers to one of the Three Fates in Greek mythology; Lachesis determined the length of the thread of life. Three species are currently recognized."
