Find out about our new project on Tiger snakes.

Young Tiger snakes from Tasmanian islands were offered dead mice of various sizes as part of an ARC funded research project (DP0663046) into the role that adaptive plasticity plays in the initial colonisation of novel habitats. Swallowing abilities were compared amongst island and mainland populations of Tiger snakes across southern Australia, as a function of snake head and body size as well as island isolation time (unpublished data).
