Garter Snakes


Garter snakes--are usually about 60 to 80 cm in length with the rare individual growing to over 135 cm. They feed upon earthworms, frogs, fish, and occasionally mice. In winter, they often den up in cracks or fissures in the earth beneath the frost line, sometimes by the thousands. The young are born live, usually 20 to 40 in a litter, with the maximum number recorded being 98. The flickering tongue is actually a sensory apparatus used to detect odors.
