xyzReptiles most recently added a group of six new and exciting Corn Snake Morphs to their Colubrid
lineup By meeting new and upcoming breeders at the last National Reptile Breeders Expo, the buying team at xyzReptiles was able to secure a steady source of quality and captively bred Corn Snake Morphs on a year round basis.
Scale ornamentation has been characterized for other species of the colubrid
tribe Lampropeltini, including Prairie Kingsnakes (L.
is a mystery, but it is possible that nocturnal predation on this species in pitfall traps by large colubrids
or viperids, or perhaps other mammals explains the low numbers of this cricetid mouse.
The Neotropical colubrid
snake genus Liophis: The Eastern Caribbean Complex.
Radiation within the advanced snakes (Caenophidia) with special emphasis on African opistoglyph colubrids
, based on mitochondrial sequence data.
Our observations reveal that in Scaphiodontophis the females start coital separation whereas in other colubrids
it is the male who starts this process (Shaw 1951).
Evidence of prey luring exists for numerous species of viperid, clapid, and boid snakes as well as six colubrids
1940) as well as the colubrids
Coluber constrictor, Heterodon platirhinos, Lampropeltis getula, Opheodrys (= Liopeltis) vernalis and Thamnophis sirtalis from Georgia, Florida or Wisconsin and the anguid lizard, Ophisaurus ventralis from Georgia (Reiber et al.
Some of these colubrids
contain small fangs in the rear of their mouth, with which they inject their prey with a venom to subdue it, but none of the South Dakota ones are poisonous to humans.
Indeed, this tree assumes monophyly between 18 genera of colubrids
, elapids, and viperids when it turns out to be not the case (Bogert 1943; Underwood 1967; McDowell 1969; Voris 1977; Cadle and Gorman 1981; Schwaner et al.
Relative mass of eggs for Pituophis is similar to that of other oviparous colubrids
calculated from data compiled by Dunham et al.
are advanced snakes and occur nearly worldwide, although marginally in Australia.
tetrapoda as a generalist parasite of the colubrids
Testicular histology was similar to that reported by Goldberg & Parker (1975) for two colubrids
Masticophis taeniatus and Pituophis catenifer (= P.
However, both brown and banded patterns are found on rear-fanged colubrids
at La Selva, and one of the banded patterns (reverse tricolor) is only found on a nonvenomous snake.
