    Found 'em!!!!!!!!!! :-)

    I found three baby blue Puget garters!!!!!!!!! I talked to the man extensively today-- his name is Greg Johnson, from NYC-- I really liked him, he asked me questions and answered everything I asked him... seems very knowledgeable, and seems to care about the welfare of the snakes but before I go any further-- anything I should know?!

    He has the parents, who were wild caught. These babies are eating f/t pinkies (in pieces-parts, ugh, lol). He sent me pics, and omg, they are cuuuuute.

    So I hope this will work out!!!!!! :-) :-)

    Re: Found 'em!!!!!!!!!! :-)

    Josh, I stumbled across him by just doing a general search for "Puget Sound garters" and was directed to an ad he had on venomousreptiles.org. I emailed him and he called me right back, then sent pics and we talked at length today.

    He just has the 3 babies for sale right now. He said the adults he has are difficult feeders, and the impression I got is he's not comfortable letting them go.

    I've got feelers out everywhere, so if I hear of anymore, I'll let you know for sure.

    Rhea, he's on Staten Island. Hedgehog, I already emailed him the link, LOL!!!

    He is a good man to buy from Lori, I bought my male california red-sided from him.

    Glad you found some Pugets Lori. Sounds like you've got a good guy to get them from too....especially with Tori's recomendation. You'll have to post pics of them when you get them.

    Tori, thanks-- very glad to hear he's good! He seemed very nice and easy to talk to, willing to answer everything. I liked, too, that he wanted to talk in person before sending the animals out. :-)

    Roy, will send pics for sure. And will then bug you all non-stop every time the little guys blink funny. lol

    I can see Rhea heading over to Staten Island soon.... :-)

    I understand there's quite a population of Easterns there as well, and I've got an invite to go herping with a guy who keeps monitors
