Reproduction and growth of the texas coral snake micrurus fulvius tenere



Copeia (3): 453-463



Spermiogenesis occurred in all months of the year except May, June and July in M. f. tenere. Males reached sexual maturity at age 12-21 mo. and at a length of about 40 cm. Sperm were found in the oviducts of females from Oct. through May. This type of breeding pattern is here termed mid-aestivoquiescent. A few females laid eggs in May but most in June, with hatching in late Aug. or early Sept. Females first copulated at an approximate age of 15 mo. and a length of about 49 cm. They first laid their eggs at an approximate age of 21 mo. and a length of about 55 cm. General reproductive system morphology is presented for both males and females, and an account of attempted copulation is given.
