In defence of their nests or territories, damselfish (Pomacentridae) attack even large and potentially dangerous intruders. The Indo-Pacific region contains many species of sea snakes, some of which eat damselfish whereas others do not. Can the fishes identify which sea snake taxa pose a threat? We ...

Abstract

Diet options for captive snakes are limited at the commercial level. Sausage diets can be developed that allow for the use of alternative protein sources (e.g., insect based) and address issues related to the feeder mice industry (e.g., expense, calorie dense, injuries from live prey, and...

AbstractFull Text

Small indigenous fishes are important part of aquatic food webs and are needed for monitoring their role in maintenance of the integrity of the food web. Thus these fish species have great importance in conservation of a community itself. The snake headed fishes are members of the freshwater...

Abstract

The success of an invasive species can be reduced by biotic resistance from the native fauna. For example, an invader that is eaten by native predators is less likely to thrive than one that is invulnerable. The ability of invasive cane toads (Rhinella marina) to spread through Australia has been...

Abstract

The ecological impact of an invasive species can depend on the behavioural responses of native fauna to the invader. For example, the greatest risk posed by invasive cane toads (Rhinella marina Bufonidae) in tropical Australia is lethal poisoning of predators that attempt to eat a toad; and thus, a ...

Abstract

Little is known about effects of maternally transferred contaminants in snakes. The purpose of this study was to evaluate sublethal effects of maternally transferred mercury (Hg) on neonatal northern watersnakes (Nerodia sipedon). We captured 31 gravid females along a historically Hg-contaminated...

Abstract

Background. Gnathostomiasis, a helminthic infection commonly reported in Southeast Asia and Latin America, may follow consumption of raw seafood infected with muscle-encysted larvae of Gnathostoma species nematodes. As a result of increasingly exotic tastes for local ethnic dishes, including raw...
