Speckle was a neonate garter I rescued along with his brother Zeros in the summer of 2002. Unfortunately due to being born with an overbite, he died about two months later.

Zeros, the surviving brother of the rescued pair, is a morph of Eastern garter snake with no dorsal stripe. He is currently growing like a weed and gets more distinct coloration with every shed.

Pilot was my first pet snake. Although she is 'low-red' for a Red-sided garter, she has a beautiful color gradient in her stripes, from red on her sides up through orange, to white near the spine. Her docile nature has made her a favorite to be handled by children, and she eats like a pig!
