    Re: Baiting snakes

    Okay now this is something I'm going to have to try. I know there are tons of garters around my place but I can never find them. I'll just have to set up one of those snake traps. ;P

    Well, I for one am thinking about it.
    Since we will have a large garden, if we get that house, I'd like to keep the garters outside year 'round.
    The Hallmen/Chlebowy book has a great section on building outdoor enclosures. Once I get into the process, I'll tell you all about it, I'm sure.

    Actually yes I have! I've also seen plans on how to do so. There's this show on AnimalPlanet called Backyard Habitat, and they actually did one for garters, in Washington state I believe. Once I finally settle on some property you can bet I'll be putting one in.

    That's awesome, I can't try it here because there aren't any garters, but I hope anyone that tries this out has the same luck!

    I'm jealous too! I'd want snakes living in my sunroom (if I had one).

    This one would of course not be for garters, but for adders and grass snakes etc. I guess the requirements would be a bit different, the temperature can drop to -40 degrees Celsius during the winter.

    I'm actually considering presenting the suggestion to the university where I study. They have the resources and the land to make it happen and the biggest threat to local snake species is, according to herpetologists, the destruction of hibernation dens.

    you'll be laying out newspaper and adding a little water bowl... maybe putting out half a can of tuna or something crazy like that
    Well…… He spotted me just before I sapped the photo but he was taking a good long drink.
