Part 1: Post a Response

In California, Pacific Northern rattlesnakes prey on California
ground squirrels. Their relationship is a great example of co-evolution.
Read the article about their relationship found at https://news.osu.edu/how-is-rattlesnake-venom-like-fine-wine-both-have-regional-varieties/, and then address the following questions:

  • Explain why the relationship between these two species is considered an example of co-evolution.
  • What did you find most interesting or significant about how the
    rattlesnake population adapts to the squirrel’s defenses against its
    venom?
