In autumn, thousands of of red sided garter snakes, along with the occasional garter snakes congregate to hibernate at limestone sink holes near Narcisse, Manitoba, Canada. Crevices in the sink holes provide humid, frostfree refuges. These snakes awaken in the spring, males first, followed by females. mating occurs shortly after emergence, then they disperse to surrounding marshlands to feed. Crows, hawks carnivorous mammala kill many snakes each year. Similiar but smaller winter dens scatered throughout North America are used by many different snake species. However or snake pits are unique because of the immense numbers that gather here.
