Introduction Welcome! My name is Bree Putman and this blog is from my Ph.D. work when I was in the Joint Doctoral Program in Ecology at San Diego State Univ. and UC Davis. I studied the predator-prey relationship between rattlesnakes and ground squirrels in California. This blog has posts about rattlesnake biology, ecology, and behavior. I summarize what I’ve read from the scientific literature into what I hope are posts that are enjoyable and easy to read for my audience. Sometimes I write about other snake species and the adaptations snakes’ prey have evolved to defend themselves against predation. I also post on my field experiences and share findings and videos from my research. Feel free to browse and enjoy!
