Common Garter Snake

Thamnophis sirtalis


Most Common Garter Snakes have yellow stripes on a brown or green background, and their average total length is about 55 cm.


Indigenous to North America and found widely across the continent. I spotted this snake on the side of a river at Bent of the River Audubon.


Thanks NateAndNature for the ID
