Artist's Description

This tiny bit of puff is a baby Common Garter Snake…..completely harmless especially at this age…he was NOT happy with me taking his picture! He’s not even yet developed his fangs so was unable to act apon this display of toughness (so yes Lenny…even YOU could have held it fearlessly).
At this point in it’s life it’s only eating worms and small insects. As it get larger it’ll eat BIGGER worms and insects and maybe even tiny baby animals like birds or mice.
Interestingly…even though this was my first snake of the year? My son and I didn’t go but a mile down the road and found a full GROWN one of the exact same species! NOW you talk about unhappy? THAT one stunk me up with it’s OTHER defense…..ick. The next 60 min’s of driving home didn’t smell too great even with the window of my car rolled down. phew!
