The cephalic arthrology of the Red-sided garter snake, Thamnophis sirtalis parietalis was investigated through scanning electron microscopy, light microscopy, and detailed dissection of connective tissue elements. This project was undertaken to provide a detailed analysis of the cephalic arthrology to serve as a foundation for future functional and comparative analyses. Overall, the level of structural complexity in these joints exceeds what has been previously described for ophidians. The most significant difference between this study and previous work is the emphasis placed upon connective tissue in the current study.
