|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|It was my cat that alerted me to this common garter snake in the back yard where I live. While these snakes may strike when threatened, they are harmless. |
Garter snakes are ovoviviparous, which means they bear their young alive. Their diet mainly consists of earthworms, fish, amphibians, and other reptiles.
