 My baby garter

Hello,

I see you guys have posted some images of baby Garter Snakes!

I recently came into possession of a baby Garter from a friend who’s adult had babies and could no longer care for them.

I have a lot of previous experience with snakes (having owned many in earlier years); however, never ones of this size. The closest I can relate it to is the size of the one posted in "Gottee guy’s" previous post! It appears to be about six inches long and looks like it has freshly shed.

What I am wondering is what I should try to feed it? I was thinking maybe an extremely small Rosy Red Minnow; but, I’m not even sure if that would still be too big!

I would appreciate any feedback in regards to feeding this little guy and I thank you for all your help in advance!

You can chop a rosy in half or in three pieces, pinky parts will also do.

Does the food not have to move for the snake to take interest into it?

I’ve always found that my previous Garters never had interest in sessile livestock; however, I could still be wrong so I look forward to hearing back from you!

Tadpoles, cut up fish and minnows, and very small toads were what I fed him.
No, they don’t have to be moving, even though garters and ribbons take greater interest in moving prey.

Your garter looks a lot like the one I used to have! Here she is:



She loved worms and slugs. But she never touched any crickets or pill bugs.
