The effects of three-dimensional gap orientation on bridging performance and behavior of brown tree snakes (Boiga irregularis).

Abstract

Traversing gaps with different orientations within arboreal environments has ecological relevance and mechanical consequences for animals. For example, the orientation of the animal while crossing gaps determines whether the torques acting on the body tend to cause it to pitch or roll from the supporting perch or fail as a result of localized bending.
