most prevalent snake in North America. It's color is variable,
but the black and white or black and yellow stripes are very
well defined. They give birth to live babies, they do not
lay eggs. The common garter snake is found as far north as
Southern Canada, and as far south as Florida and Texas.
They are a very docile snake and very beneficial to our environment,
eating insects and worms. Please take note in the pictures
of the round pupil as opposed to an elliptical pupil which
is a hallmark of a venomous snake.
