With their sinuous bodies, sharp fangs and, sometimes, potent venom, snakes have long struck fear into the hearts of humans and our primate ancestors. But when it comes to mating, do these ancient reptiles also have a softer side? Though snakes garner much media and research attention, the reproductive strategies of many species are still shrouded in mystery. Unlike most other snakes, the mating behaviors of garter snakes have been extensively studied. When males catch the pheromone scent of a female, they will swarm over her, forming a "mating ball. Within the snake mass, each male will try his best to get the female to open her cloaca waste and reproductive orifice so that he can insert his penis and mate with her. Many snakes are known to take a more one-on-one approach.

The vomeronasal organ VNO is important for activating accessory olfactory pathways that are involved in sexually dimorphic mating behavior. The VNO of male garter snakes is critically important for detection of, and response to, female sex pheromones. In the present study, under voltage-clamp conditions, male snake VNO neurons were stimulated with female sexual attractiveness pheromone. The amplitude of the inward current was dose dependent, and the relationship could be fitted by the Hill equation. Under current-clamp conditions, application of pheromone produced membrane depolarizing responses and increases in firing frequency.
We used to assume that male snakes were in charge and females were largely passive, but that has proved to be spectacularly wrong. The anaconda's swollen body suggested she was full of food, so Rivas waited for her to throw up: snakes often vomit after a meal if they have over-eaten or are stressed, to make themselves lighter so they can flee. But instead of a typical prey, like a capybara, a reptilian tail started emerging from her mouth.
