I have two relocation studies on my web site that discuss the Crotalus. Use this URL in ase the link at the bottom of the page doesn't work.

Long distance relocation is NOT a good idea for Crotalus as they have home ranges; short distance relocation is fine. I have not seen any studies for relocation of Colubrids, but we can extrapolate that some have home ranges as well and that relocation would affect some of them similarly.
