March 12, 2021

These data represent the interaction between two male individuals of California Kingsnakes in Apache Junction, northern Pinal County, Arizona. The interaction was observed, recorded on video, and documented. The dataset is a time series description of the interaction and behaviors of two male California Kingsnakes (Lampropeltis californiae; the two individuals are labeled "B" and "D" for purposes of description) which was used to describe aspects of the interaction in the accompanying publication. Second-by second breakdown of the video sequence provided the "time-stamped" descriptions contained in the data table. These data support the journal article "Lampropeltis californiae (California Kingsnake) behavior, male combat," by providing detailed observations of snake interactions.
