    Is my garter fat?

    For about a month and a half I was feeding my snake a pinkie about 1 every five days--so more then just once a week. I hadn't been handling him since he is wild caught and I didn't want to stress him out.

    I took him out last night to do a complete breakdown of his enclosure and noticed he's really chunky. I think I'm going to take him out at least once a week and slow down feeding. What do you guys think?

    She's a good looking female. 1 pinky every 5 days is not a problem.

    They are not just snakes. They're garter snakes.

    Female!? Really? I always assumed the smaller size meant male? Are there any pictures I can send that will make the designation more sure?

    Was she wild caught or captive bred?
