Butler's Garter Snake

Thamnophis butleri


Garter snake hatchlings (2 heads in photo) at one day old.


Woods and covered,grassy areas. In this photo specifically a tank before release.


I taught Environmental Ed at a summer camp. I caught their mom to show to campers and apparently took care of her well enough to see 24 hatchlings in early august. They were all released shortly after, even mom.

No species ID suggestions
