 What do baby garders eat??

Hey.

Ok. So... My friend found a baby garder outside of his house under some wood. I told him that baby garders eat day old or newborn pinki mice. He said no no, he can’t fit his mouth around that. So after about two weeks the baby went without eating. Gladly just yesterday he let it go. So I’d like to know, what do baby (hatchling) garder snakes eat? I know he will find more througout the summer because he has found four so far.

Thank you.

You should have seen me. I was so ticked off because he said that he knew more about them than I did. He don’t know anything about reptiles or snakes. The reason why they did not want to go to the pet store and buy pinki mice was because his father said that pinki mice are to big and blah blah blah.

This poor little snake had a very sucky and did not had the right care for the two weeks he was with my friend.

30 gallon tank
grass from out side
a few branches
dirt

That is all this poor little snake had. Uh! I just felt like I wanted to kill him. He made me so mad!!!!

He even tryed to feed that snake some crickets, which is a big no no. I told him not to. So he force fed him crickets from out side. Uh!!!! Retard much.

They definately can’t eat pinkies as a newborn. Small guppies or pieces of trout and earthworms work best.

Also, garters don’t hatch. They give live birth.

Baby Garter’s can eat small earthworms. He should eat them.
