In Reply to: Male size and combat posted by WW on May 16, 2002 at 07:05:50:

Though I do not remember the refference off hand, Aspidelaps lubricus has been known to engage in male combat danceing and in this sp the female usualy gets larger. As Richard said, im sure there are alot of other exceptions to the rule but I cant think of any others off the top of me head right now.

Good, clean, freindly topic! I love it!

All the best from the Yank out west,
Jeremy

: There are exceptions to the rule that in snakes with combat, males are larger. Vipera berus is one that springs to mind. It simply depends on the different selective pressures on the two sexes.
