A gorgeous Flame Eastern garter snake (Thamnophis sirtalis sirtalis)
If I hear one more person tell me that all garter snakes are cheap boring trash snakes I am gonna scream… :|
Just shows they are ignorant of their variety. Crappy flash pic of one of my flame eastern garter females to spam you guys.
Beautiful garter. The only thing keeping me from having a Puget Sound garter (beautiful blue and black snakes) is that here in Washington we can’t keep native species.
