The role of the midland water snake, Nerodia sipedon (Serpentes: Colubridae), as a predator: Foraging behavior, kin recognition, and the response of prey


, : The role of the midland water snake, Nerodia sipedon (Serpentes: Colubridae), as a predator: Foraging behavior, kin recognition, and the response of prey. Amphibia Reptilia 23(3): 333-342

The midland water snake, Nerodia sipedon, is very abundant in portions of the southeastern U.S.A., where it may play an important role as a predator in freshwater communities. I examined whether foraging mode in naive neonatal snakes was phenotypically plastic or canalized and I compared handling times and capture efficiencies for different prey types (juvenile fishes and frogs) between neonatal and adult snakes.
