Red-spotted Garter Snake eating a mouse (2003)

    Newer Older

    Garter snakes do eat mice, and adult female garter snakes are big enough to take adult mice. Here's our since-departed Red-spotted Garter Snake (more on whom here) doing just that.

      Boy, those are some flashy garter snakes you got there! Ours here on the North Coast are very diverse, but more subdued in colour scheme. Great shot!

      I'm going to go out on a limb here and guess that one is a Clark County, WA snake or at least was found close to the Columbia or Columbia/Willamette river junction. I have one just like her, 13 years old and nearly 4 feet. She adores rat pinkies.
