Aspects of spatial and temporal habitat segregation in the grass snake (Natrix natrix Linnaeus, 1758):
Like all central European snake species, grass snakes require different sub-habitats during the year. These sub-habitats may be spatially segregated (e.g. in the valleys of the mountainous areas) or closely combined (as in extended pond areas), depending on the landscape structure. Thus, grass snakes of certain populations show extended seasonal movements. Furthermore, there are strong indications for a segregation between juvenile and adult habitats in some populations if juveniles remain near the egg-laying sites after hatching, while adults have returned to distant summer grounds.
As a consequence, spatial and temporal aspects of habitat segregation in the grass snake should be included in concepts for protection measurements.
