    Gail's garter - the snake kind silly.

    This is my first garter, one rescued Eastern. No idea of age, she is a wild caught that had the end of her tail taken off and was in a reptile rescue until healed. The guy was going to release her back into the wild but knew I was looking for a Eastern, so taaa daaaah meet Zena.

    Her body is far from perfect, she has lots of scares and like I said the end of her tail is gone but she is so sweet. She has not tried to bit or even attempted to strike at me. She has not musked or eliminated on me. She ate a worm right from my fingers, 2 actually. She paces back and forth and wants out, but my hope is this will stop once she realizes that she is in a safe place with endless food, fresh water & lots of love. She is my Zena.

    Zena is a good looking snake. I'm glad she's is in a safe environment and being taken care of.
    Any chance we can get a look at this injured tail area and maybe an underside look at the tail?
    It is encouraging that she's eating right from your hand.
    Give her sometime to settle in and get comfortable. She's had a rough time of it as of lately.
    Looking forward to hearing about Zena's future.

    What a big, beautiful girl you have there! So glad she found a good home. She is a very lovely eastern. That is wonderful that she is eating out of your hand...my w/c easterns are very skiddish. I like the name too. Looking forward to hearing all about your adventures with Zena in the future.

    She is a beauty! Great looking garter! I'm with Steve, I'd like to see her old scars and tail injury. Those scars just means she's had a rough life up until now. She's very lucky to have a loving home and someone to care for her! You don't have to be perfect to be beautiful

    That stubby tail is looking good and she should do well with it.
    Just make sure she sheds completely.

    Trust me, I'll almost be counting the scales on the shed.
