Abstract: It is well known that rodenticides are widely used, and there are multiple routes by which they can reach non-target wildlife species. Specifically, in the Canary Islands, a high and concerning incidence of these compounds has been reported. However, in this scenario, reptiles remain one of the least studied taxa, despite their potential suitability as indicators of the food chain and environmental pollution has been noted on several occasions. In this context, the California Kingsnake (Lampropeltis Californiae), widely distributed on the island of Gran Canaria, occupies a medium trophic level and exhibits feeding habits that expose it to these pollutants, could be studied as a potential sentinel of exposure to these compounds. For this reason, 360 snake livers were analyzed by LC-MS/MS. Similarly, 110 livers of birds of prey were sampled. Thus, we present the analysis of 10 anticoagulant rodenticides (warfarin, diphacinone, chlorophacinone, coumachlor, coumatetralyl, brodifacoum, bromadiolone, difethialone, difenacoum and flocoumafen) in both data series; snakes, and raptors. Furthermore, this dataset includes biological data (weight, length, sex, colour, and design pattern), geographic data (distribution area and municipalities) and necropsy findings that could be of interest for a better understanding of this snake species and for future studies.
