Study on how snakes respond to airborne and groundborne sounds

This group exposed 19 different snakes across 5 different genera to sounds in the 0–150Hz, 150–300Hz, and 300–450Hz ranges to observe the effects of sound on individual snake behavior.

Wow, so interesting!


It’s cool to hear about snakes behavior towards sound being inheritable, being influenced by the environment they come from! It makes sense, but to see someone coin it in a scientific study is awesome! Every day, bit by bit, little by little, we will continue to uncover new discoveries about snakes both in the wild and in captivity that will continue to improve our understanding of them as valuable members of our ecosystems and lives.
