Thermal biology of the common garter snake Thamnophis sirtalis
When they venture down onto the grassy substrate they expose themselves to attacks from such predators as meadow voles Microtus pennsylvanicus and garter snakes Thamnophis sirtalis
The main objective of this study was to compare energy allocation patterns between two populations of common garter snakes (Thamnophis sirtalis
) found at different elevations (Grand River Wildlife Area (GRWA: elevation 225m ASL), OH & Spruce Knob Lake (SKL: elevation 1158 ASL), WV).
This species also serves as a critical food source for the endangered San Francisco garter snake ( Thamnophis sirtalis
The effects of ecdysis on feeding frequency and behavior of the commongarter snake (Thamnophis sirtalis
For example, the interactions between tritons, Taricha granulosa, and snakes, Thamnophis sirtalis
(Brodie, Ridenhour and Brodie, 2002), and between moths, Greya politella, and woodland star Lithophragma parviflorum (Thompson and Pellmyr, 1992) present evidence of evolution for only one of the interacting species.
For example, Solman (1945) found a yellow-headed blackbird (Xanthocephalus xanthocephalus) and Lagler (1956) found a garter snake (Thamnophis sirtalis
) in their respective northern pike feeding studies.
