Nice snake! Please be sure to add this to the Snakes of the United States – CSC mission to help with their citizen science project!

In my other spottings there is a picture of two garter hatchlings. They are two of either 22 or 24 (cannot remember, and frankly they were very hard to count!). They were definitely a treat to watch move, and interact, and just plan look at because each one was born with a different colour pattern to them.

'in person' !! ha! I know what you mean Goody - they are a most appealing snake especially when there are dozens in a bunch. That would be great to see up close.
