rothdigga Here's a photo of the Eastern Garter Snake that we hiked near Tampa last Friday. I'll be back out there for a wedding, shop visits, the Tampa Bro and Tampa Pro in about one week. Hoping to find some more stuff in the mornings. Hopefully it'll warm up a bit to bring all the good reptiles out to play. Thanks @snakemannick for showing us the spots. @anthonyfurlong 1d

  •   tx_snakewrangler Insect eating snakes are usually really tough to keep alive, @jenhatchh . I like garters because they get about 3-3.5ft max (the Chapala above will get to 4ft) which means I don't have to have a gigantic cage! But I have 2 cornsnakes and they're sweet too. I'd be happy to give you a good deal on a baby this year. I should have plains garters and red sided garters. 2d
  •   tx_snakewrangler Thanks man, they are cool and unusual garters for sure! They act goofy too, different than some garters. @jacob.rossi 2d
  •   tx_snakewrangler thank you kindly.. @mayooya83 @ancusack @sstano 2d
  •   tx_snakewrangler Thanks @tomsnaaaaake ! It's just an iPhone 5 but I try to take good pics with it, keeping my hand still. Haha. I'm getting the 6 in April and I know it has an even better camera on it. 2d

zacharge Coast Garter Snake (Thamnophis elegans terrestris)- San Mateo County, California
After a quick hike in the redwoods with @waterbod today, I decided to stop by a vacant lot along the coast to check out the local garters. As there is little to no cover to flip at this spot, I walked in the tall grass in hopes of scaring up a garter or two. Within 10 minutes, I caught 7 snakes. The first snakes that I ever caught as a child were Coast garters. These common snakes helped to build my love of herpetology and herping at a very young age. No matter how common, I will always love and respect these snakes that many herpers have come to dismiss as "trash". #herpetology #fieldherping #herping #bayareaherps #snake #californiaherps #california #gartersnake #sanmateo #santacruz #hike #hiking #nature #naturalhistory #ecology #wildlifephotography #wildlife #sanfrancisco #biology #conservation #thamnophis #coastgartersnake

afroherpkeeper Mort's been really skittish since she came out of brumation, so I can't get a great shot of her. Here's this anyways because I'm really glad she's out

  •   ofoss1020 Why do you like them so much 4d
  •   lweigle Its probably due to the nostalgic feeling they give me reminding me of a time before cell phones and tv. Where i would spend hours as a kid wondering through the forest looking for snakes, frogs, and, salamanders. Also garter snakes are some badass dude. Being an expert fisher, having rear fangs, and they have a very pungent form of chemical war fare. Whats not to love. @ofoss1020 3d
  •   ofoss1020 You make a very good point they are very cool and i also did the same as a kid 2d
  •   kingturbz ^truth, except the musk lol 2d
