    The garters are doing well and bulking up. I took some pictures two nights ago just after feeding them earthworms. After a couple weeks they are starting to show a little more color too. Uploading pics in a bit.

    And no worries Snake Man. If you go there and find anything post some pics. You can probably find a few snakes this time of year but Spring is a guarantee.

    When the snakes get full of worms they show their patterns a little better. You can see a few of the different patterns and colors, especially the last one of three.

    Do you feed in that enclosure?

    Yes. I usually throw the worms in an area were there is as little dirt as possible so they don't eat too much other none sense. Sometimes they run off into the dirt though because the other ones try and steal their worm. Just fed them again and one got so fat it threw up then ate half of what it regurgitated lol.

    You might consider feeding away from the substrate. A separate container or containers. Best to not ingest any substrate.
    Just my opinion.

    No doubt. Yeah I guess that would make sense, maybe a Tupperware container with some paper towels. I'll give it a shot next time when I find another batch of worms.

    Is feeding them strictly worms when they are less than a month old ok or should I try to find some small tadpoles or chopped up fish?

    Just had a feeding. They're growing like weeds. Eating pretty much every day, fat as can be and then significantly thinner the next day. Crazy metabolism garters have.

    I fed them in a clean container this time so they wouldn't eat any dirt. Still plenty of food fights though, hah.
