 How to convince my mom

I had to do the same thing tell her they only get about 1 1/2 long but they really get 2-3 long but she wont know the difference and dont listen to the tag they said mine was a indonesian garter snake and it was a striped keelback it aint even a garter snake. and garter snakes arent smelly at all unless u dont clean out there cage. Petco will probably tell u that they only eat fish but they dont they can eat pinkys which are really small mice tadpoles frogs newts salamanders and worms what size do u have your leo in u can keep them in a 10 for a little while until u get a 20 gallon or bigger im not sure what the smallest garter is but it would only be a couple inches a part and tthe 4 garters that ive had never bit me at all 1 tried to because i was carring the fish in my hand and after it ate the fish it was still hungry and i smelled like fish so he tried to bite me

Animalover96 -

1. USE periods.
2. DO NOT USE "U" instead of "You".


leogecko1 -

1. Also USE periods.
2. USE spell checker.
3. Try getting a garter from the wild, at least that way you know it is a garter and doesn’t have as many defects as the ones you find at Petco, which oddly enough aren’t even garter snakes most of the time (just ask Animalover96).

Its illegal to catch wild ones and keep them, but nobody really cares. I got mine through a small game permit someone else had.

Well, first you’ll want to really identify it. My Gulf Coast Ribbon snake was sold under the name of Indonisian Garter Snake!

As for convincing your mother... Get the enclosure set up. Really so some research, and make sure your mother knows that you know what you’re getting. Snakes really only smell bad when you feed them fish (the feces end up smelling nasty if you feed them fish too often), and when they musk. When a snake musks, they release a really nasty smell to ’scare’ you away. With proper sociallization, they’ll grow out of that habbit though.
