Niche partitioning within a population of seasnakes is constrained by ambient thermal homogeneity and small prey size

Richard Shine, Claire Goiran & Gregory Brown
In many populations of terrestrial snakes, an individual’s phenotype (e.g. body size, sex, colour) affects its habitat use. One cause for that link is gape-limitation, which can result in larger snakes eating prey that are found in different habitats. A second factor involves thermoregulatory opportunities, whereby individuals select habitats based upon thermal conditions. These ideas predict minimal intraspecific variation in habitat use in a species that eats small prey and lives in a thermally uniform...
