snakes: Allometry of snakes

Description Usage Format References Examples

Description

This dataframe holds data for Snout-vent length and mass for a large collection of snake species. Besides genus and species, family association is also included. This dataset was obtained at https://academic.oup.com/biolinnean/article/108/1/161/2415670#supplementary-data and cleaned manually, so errors are quite possible.
