Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Compared to Florida individuals, a smaller percentage of Massachusetts Thamnophis sirtalis sirtalis will accept fish. Both experienced adults and isolated newborn snakes respond similarly; the behavior is innate and correlated with habitat differences between the two localities. Although food preference in Natrix sipedon is also innate, geographic variation is not as clearcut.
