Data from: Morphological convergence in a Mexican garter snake associated with the ingestion of a novel prey

Javier Manjarrez, Constantino Macías Garcia & Hugh Drummond
Morphological convergence is expected when organisms which differ in phenotype experience similar functional demands, which lead to similar associations between resource utilization and performance. To consume prey with hard exoskeletons, snakes require either specialized head morphology, or to deal with them when they are vulnerable, e.g. during molting. Such attributes may in turn reduce the efficiency with which they prey on soft-bodied, slippery animals such as fish. Snakes which consume a range of prey may...
