 Caught a Garter and not to mention FINALLY!

So since I let my baby garter go about a year ago, I’ve been waiting to catch another one. And I FINALLY did.

Story? I was piling firewood, and of course, keeping an eye out for garters. My sister found one and gave him (or her) to me. I set up my terrarium and put him in. He’s really calm about it all, doesn’t like being held though... anyway, he’s pretty small and REALLY cute. :) It’s funny because the same day, earlier, we found a big foot long garter. I like to think she was Alex (the baby garter I let go a year ago)! :)

I’ll post pics later, definitely. :)

One question though: when I hold him, he sometimes opens his mouth part way then closes it again...have any idea what that’s about?

He actually bit me. And he still hasn’t eaten.

Wow, that sounds weird. Contact a vet and make an appointment.

Biting is weird or not eating?

Not yet...he’ll eat.
