Northern Garter Snake

Thamnophis ordinoides


A small snake but it was aggressive. It bit my little guy .. I was a little apprehensive about this but all turned out well. As my little one is fascinated by reptiles and has no qualms about handling them, I need to learn more so I can avoid potential problems in the future.

So cute! Please consider adding it to the "Reptiles of the Pacific Northwest" mission!

Thank you, Aaron. You are absolutely correct! I've cropped the pictures ... I was just so anxious to take part in the challenge this week and sadly, we haven't been able to capture many snake spottings on camera. They are just too quick for us! :)

Hi, Eva. These are wonderful spottings and it's so refreshing to see parents get their children out to enjoy nature. Since the focus of Project Noah is to highlight the non-human organisms, will you please take a moment to crop these images to show off the snakes? It's most appreciated and keep those two connected to nature! :-)
