    I caught this 3' girl in May, didn't know she was gravid at the time. She had 13 babies last month. Her name is Precious because she is...I have never known a Garter to be so social, she seems to beg to be taken out when you approach her tank. We released her babies back where she was found.

    She's lovely, i hope the babies do well and keep the population up in the wild. Good luck to her, she's a real beauty.

    How cool! Did you get to watch her give birth or did you just go in there and find a tank full of babies?

    I missed the miracle :( She hadn't eaten in almost 3 weeks so when I went to check on her...there they were, tiny clones. I was running around calling myself a snake gramma :p I have 2 Northwestern Garters who also had babies, missed those too. My timing ****s, lol.

    Too bad you missed seeing that miracle. But great job in releasing the babes.

    Cool :) I used to breed my garters and release the babies too. I think garter snakes have some of the cutest snake babies there are :D
