Small snakes such as Diadophis, Carphophis, and Storeria placed in terraria with the skinks evoked no strong reaction.
Some of those obtained were kept under observation in terraria where their behavior was studied.
Evidently normal room temperatures were maintained in the laboratory where the terraria were kept.
The females occasionally left their nests, especially in late afternoon, to wander about the terraria, and to bask in sunlight.
Wasps (Polistes) placed in terraria were avoided, as were carabid beetles and reduviid bugs.
