Annual pattern of activity of the brown tree snake in southeastern Queensland



Annual pattern of activity of the brown tree snake in southeastern Queensland



Memoirs of the Queensland Museum 39(2): 483-486



Dates of collection of Boiga irregularis from SE Queensland in the Queensland Museum indicate adult snakes were most commonly collected in January, February and March, the warmest and wettest months. Juvenile snakes were less numerous than adults, but were represented in all months of the year, with peaks in January and April. Few females were collected during final stages of egg development, and few gravid females are represented. These observations support field observations that suggest adults are most active in the warm, wet summer months and that females are relatively inactive during late ovarian development and when gravid.
