Keywords:Cuba, Endemic snake, Eggs, Incubation time, Neonates, West Indies
The Cuban Lesser Racer (Caraiba andreae) belongs to a monotypic genus endemic to the Cuban Archipelago. The species comprises six subspecies, some of which have restricted distributions. The natural history, particularly the reproductive biology, of some subspecies is virtually unknown. Herein we provide the first data on reproduction and growth of C. a. peninsulae, a subspecies restricted to the westernmost tip of the main island.
