Eastern Garter Snake

Thamnophis sirtalis sirtalis


The only local snake with a light stripe down its back. They have quite variable coloration with some individuals having very faint or no stripes at all.


This one was sunning itself in front of our Red-tailed hawk's enclosure.


First snake of the year!
