During the past six years there has been a rather unusual opportunity at the Department of Zoology and Entomology of Iowa State College for the study of snakes in captivity. By capture, donation, exchange and purchase, many specimens of more than fifty species have at different times been occupants of our cages. Of these, twenty species were natives of this state and included all but a few rare species of our snake fauna.
