Hello all. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions of published writings on the natural history, ecology, etc. of the Eastern Diamondback Rattlesnake, Crotalus adamanteus, and the Cottonmouth, Agkistrodon piscovorous.
I was also curious about studies into the natural history of the Gopher Tortoise, Gopherus polyphemus. I assume there must have been some type of landmark study or studies that documented all the different animals that use the burrows these animals construct.
Just beginning to cultivate an interest in the reptiles in my area. Thanks in advance for any help or suggestions you can provide!
