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.
This rusty red colored Eastern was
photographed in suburban Albany, NY.
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!
Above are pictures of two different
wild-caught red phase Maritime garter snakes in Maine. Both tof these are adult males.
A blue phase Maritime female, from
the same location as the above snakes.
