Abstract

The north coast of Bahia comprises a 220 km long region within the Atlantic rainforest ecoregion. Studies focusing

locations, including habitat use and activity patterns. The sites were surveyed for three years, and four museum collections

fauna at Instituto da Mata contained the greatest richness with 15 observed species, the snake fauna at Imbassaí exhibited

species. Snakes occurred mainly in the restinga ecosystem (N = 27), followed by ombrophilous forest (N = 25), and consisted

in other vegetation types related to their biology. The snake assemblage on the north coast of Bahia is similar to others in

the Atlantic rainforest and Caatinga domain in northeastern Brazil.
