Well I have come to the conclusion that I am totaly in love with my little Garter Snake, Flash. When I was a kid I brought home countless snakes only to have my mom make me take them back. Now that I have Flash, my husband and kids love her, and when my mom visits even she seems to like her! She is so sweet and friendly, even my 4 year old carries her around and plays with her. (supervised of course!) Who knew such a little snake could charm so many hearts!
