Survey/Project Number: 757          Total No. of Sites: 15
Survey/Project Name: South Australian Elapid snakes - ambush predation vs. active foraging (Geen)
Abstract: This project will study the ecology and behaviour of ambush vs. active foraging Elapid snakes in South Australia. The project will include work on native Elapids in the Eyre Peninsula, Port Jarrold (Port Pirie), Yorke Peninsula, Mount Lofty Ranges and Kangaroo Island. The project began in 2009 and during the first year, data was collected for all Elapid species encountered at the study sites. The project eventually will be narrowed down to focus on the ecology of a few snake species in detail.
