    pallidulus

    I haven’t posted here in a long time, but I thought I would try to get a photo of a Maritime Garter that has been in my woodpile this summer. Much to my surprise there were a pile of them (5-6) and they scooted before I could get a photo. Managed to grab one and got him to sit for a photo. Pardon the dirty hands.

    Terry why would you label that "pallidulus"? That's an Eastern (T. s. sirtalis) not a Maritime.

    Re: pallidulus

    LOL, we went through this YEARS ago as to their true identity. Are they Maritimes or just Easterns with a color variation? The general consensus at the time was that they were Maritimes maybe. Their range does include NY. Anyway they do look like the snakes identified as Maritimes, so I like to think they are.

    Nice to hear from you. Great looking Tham. Do they still visit inside?

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

    Hey Steve, been a long time. I winter in Florida now, so they are gone by the time I get back, but there is usually a skin or two in the sunspace. I was pretty surprised to see such a group together, all looked almost identical. No garters at our place in FL, but we do have a Black Racer hanging around, beautiful and FAST!

    LOL itís unfortunate that you went thru it YEARS ago and still havenít figured it out. A general consensus 4 years ago was that Hillary would win, but she got trumped into oblivion, so thatís how much a general consensus is worth. BTW this is what real Maritimes look like:

    Those pictures are amazing!!! I didn’t know garters and milk snakes got along!! Is that something that happens a lot in the wild or were those just two unusually friendly snakes?

    They don’t, it happened that they were about the same size, so the garter was safe. I usually move the milk snakes far away out of my yard when I find them.
