These data include information on female western terrestrial garter snakes (Thamnophis elegans), born in captivity in fall 2010 from wild-caught pregnant females. Animals were used to study the relationship between whole-animal metabolic rate and cellular rates of oxygen consumption and the primary fuel source used to support metabolism, over a range of environmentally relevant temperatures (24, 28, 32, 36ºC).
