Abstract

*[Although a wide variety of prey were found in stomachs, Formicidae & Coleoptera: Carabidae were found to be the most important food items in the diet of P. albagula. Ants & beetles constituted 85% abundance of their total diet & 52.2% of their total biomass. Seventy-eight & 87% of individuals examined from the Ozark & Ouachita Mountains, respectively, consumed ants, whereas 55% in the Ozarks & 58% in the Ouachitas consumed at least one family of beetle.]
