Brown Treesnake Consumes Gecko

Brown Treesnake Consumes Gecko

Detailed Description

Juvenile Brown Treesnakes (BTS) prefer to eat cold-blooded species like geckos and skinks. This snake was encountered consuming a locally abundant gecko, also thought to be a human introduction to Guam. The abundance of nonnative prey on Guam supports BTS populations and poses challenges to suppression of snakes for native species recovery.
