Oh sweet. That’s SO cool. I just got a baby garter.

I saw a huge one the other day, couldn’t catch it though, way to fast. Lol.

Good luck! What are you going to feed it?

Ooh. Wow. 10 times...are you sure it’s a garter? Garter’s don’t usually bite...I know I way to determine if it’s a garter or a ribbon...

Did he eat any of the toads?

Oh that’s cool. My garter still isn’t eat. UGH.

Okay, on the garter’s head, in between 2 of the biggest scales, there should be 2 yellow dots, one of each scale, almost touching. They are pretty small, but not really "mis-able".

If your garter doesn’t eat you should either take him to the vet or let him go CapeCobra
