Woodsnakes and Spinejaw Snakes: Tropidophiidae - Diet

eat genus species salamanders

Much of the information about the diet of these snakes comes from captive snakes rather than those in the wild. The West Indian species of the genus Tropidophis eat anoles, which are small, long-tailed lizards. Species in the genus Exiliboa feed on small salamanders and on frog eggs, while those in the genus Trachyboa make both fishes and amphibians part of their diet. Amphibians include such animals as salamanders and frogs. The dusky dwarf boa, which is the largest member of the family, will eat small mammals and birds. In captivity, many larger snakes in this group will eat baby mice.
