Growth and Capture-Mark-Recapture Data for San Francisco Gartersnakes, Thamnophis sirtalis tetrataenia, in San Mateo County, California from 2007 to 2020

May 9, 2022

This dataset includes records of captures of San Francisco gartersnakes (Thamnophis sirtalis tetrataenia) collected at five sites from 2007 to 2020. The data include measurements of snake snout-vent length to estimate growth patterns, snake sex, and the record of all captures of individual snakes for estimating capture probability, availability for capture, and survival.

These data support the following publication:
