Amsterdam Wildlife Tip:
The Garter Snake: Appearance, Biology, Life Cycle, Habitat, Diet, Behavior

Garter snakes are one of the most commonly found snakes in the United States. Many people even prefer to raise them as a pet at home because they are usually harmless. Some of these species also have mild neurotoxic venom, but experts reveal that it is not much dangerous for humans.


The garter snakes are observed to have a wide range of colors, and their appearance often depends upon where they live. One of the most common and easy to recognize a characteristic of these creatures is their 3 longitudinal stripes. Out of these three stripes, the first one is found in the center of their body; however, the other two are present at a lower portion of the body. These stripes may be yellowish and greenish in color, and the ultimate appearance keeps on varying depending upon the region where they live.


Studies show that these snakes do not follow any specific criteria to select their habitats; rather they feel free to roam anywhere and can build dens as per their need. In most of the cases, they are found at woodlands, meadows, grassy knolls and other regions that are close to the source of water.


Experts say that the garter snakes do no follow nocturnal habits rather they prefer to stay active in the day hours. There is no doubt to say that garter snakes are faster reptiles and they are skilled climbers as well. In case if they feel threatened, they start releasing a foul smell that is intolerable to humans. These creatures are believed to be harmless in general, but in case if they bite in aggression, the victim may suffer mild pain and swelling. Some people are also allergic to the saliva of garter snakes. Whether you feel these bites painful or not, it is good to contact medical health professionals as soon as to avail desired treatment.


The garter snakes prefer to target fishes, amphibians, and earthworms but it doesn't mean that their diet is limited to these three creatures. These snakes can target other preys as well depending upon the needs. their common technique to hunt a prey is that they use their sharp teeth and reflexes to make the prey immovable. Some preys find the saliva of garter snakes more effective and the toxicity level is enough to make them paralyzed. As soon as the prey become unable to move or protect itself, the snake swallows it fast.


Studies show that garter snakes prefer to hibernate every year for few months and the breeding season usually starts right after the hibernation. As they stay together at the time of hibernation, they do not need special time to search for a partner rather rely on the pheromones to find the best mating partner around. Garter snakes usually give birth to small snakes; hence, they are also named as ovoviviparous. These snakes can also multiply fast so they should not be allowed to live within the human habitat.
