    They aren't nocturnal. Active during day light.
    Simple needs/ care.

    Seem to have lots of personality. when I had garters they were always favorites among all my friends for that reason.

    I have been interacting (feeding) a couple of wild snakes that have been visiting, and their "personalities" are just great. From what I have seen they make great active (don't just lie there) pets.

    Very very friendly! Even wild caught garters warm up to you in as little as 2 weeks! I cant say the same for some other snake species.

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

    Generally speaking, snakes are one of the few animals that tolerate humans very quickly. I've found my garter inquisitive, quick to calm down and in general just very pleasant. I love how its awake when I am and is always having a nose around.
