Data on exchange of respiratory gases are presented for the entire post-deposition period of development of the black snake. Of special note among the data are (1) an initial relatively high rate of O2 consumption and CO2 production, (2) an initially high R.Q., followed by a persistently low R.Q. (0.53).
