The “Name that Snake” Game

Common Garter Snake

I found this little garter snake in the orchard around dusk. He was very skinny with no bulge to digest so hadnt eaten yet and was no doubt cruising for a nice field mouse. i enjoy the presence of the various types of garter snakes i have here because they eat the mice without posing a threat to me or the dogs and they are very gentle natured and generally shy. Also many of them came over in the rock load from my friend Cindy’s property as tiny babies and it has been interesting to watch how much they’ve grown feasting on a steady diet of field mice.
