Western terrestrial garter snake

Thamnophis elegans


About 3 feet long


My backyard and surrounding wild areas


I adopted this one when I found out she was blind. I believe her to be between 8 and 12 years old though I'm not sure and she's still kicking. Well slithering

No species ID suggestions
