Abstract

Provides data on body size, sexual size dimorphism, reproductive biology and food habits of Elapognathus minor and Rhinoplocephalus bicolor. The former has litter sizes of 8-12, is diurnal and eats skinks and frogs; the latter has litters of 1-5, is crepuscular (usually remaining within stick-ant nests, which are warm and dry) and eats only skinks. -P.J.Jarvis
