Eastern Garter Snake

T. s. sirtalis


Brown with some yellow near bottom. Around 8 to 10 inches long. Likes the water and swims well.


The frog pond in my garden and the bricks that surround it.


My son noticed this snake yesterday and has been watching for him constantly. It likes the bricks surrounding the pond although my son found him swimming in the pond.
