Thermal ecology of arboreal green snakes (Opheodrys aestivus
Two noteworthy snakes that were located on the LBJ Wildflower Property but absent from Camp Mabry were the rough green snake (Opheodrys aestivus
) and the black-necked garter snake (Thamnophis cyrtopsis), both of which are known to occur near Austin (Milstead 1953).
Postprandial thermophily in rough green snakes (Opheodrys aestivus
Indeed, annual variation in size of offspring (egg or hatchling) has been studied poorly in snakes in general (Seigel and Ford, 1987), although it has been documented for two oviparous species (rough green snake Opheodrys aestivus
, among females, Plummer, 1983; brown water python Liasis fuscus, both within and among females, Madsen and Shine, 1996) and two viviparous species (T sirtalis, Gregory and Larsen, 1993; asp Vipera aspis, Bonnet et al., 2001).
Three species: cottonmouth (Agkistrodon piscivorus; 49.8%), rough green snake (Opheodrys aestivus
; 15.9%), and gray ratsnake (Pantherophis spiloides; 10.7%) comprised 76.5% of snakes encountered from 2003 2008.
