 Please help identify....

Hi there... we live out in AZ... and found these guys.... we home school and thought it would be fun to learn what kind of snake they are... and how to take care of them... and see if we could keep them as pets.....

So far.... we have figured out that they LOVE goldfish.... each have eaten two fish each today....(the goldfish had died this morning so we figured might as well make use of them...)...

ANyways.... if you could help identify them and point me in the direction for proper care and feeding... I would be grateful.

THank you!! =)

that is an eastern garter snake. because of the black lines on the upper jaw. and the one line on the back, and the checkerd appearance.

I agree its a Garter snake. I do not recommend keeping these snakes as they are wild. I have tried to keep a wild Garter snake, they don’t do well. He kept beating his head on the glass causing trauma. if you want a snake you should buy one, for the snakes sake. I hope this helped
