Doesn't Bother Me . . .

but I don't want one for a pet.


INTERESTING FACTS

Garter snakes are one of the first snakes to appear in spring and can be active throughout the year even on warm winter days. Unlike other snakes, garter snakes do not lay eggs; instead, they have a live birth of up to 50 babies at once.
Friendly until I added the flash . .

  7. Interesting pictures. We have a mating den for these snakes about a 1 ½ hour drive from where I live. It is quite interesting to see this, although,I have no desire to handle one of these critters.

  9. I am thankful for the friendly snakes...they help keep the unfriendly snakes away, and the rodents! I just don't like it when they eat my baby birds...but other than that...they are okay! (from a distance!)
