    Not a chance. My frogs don't go topless. That would just be weird.

    Re: Please help me with my garter snake!

    Hi peeps. A little update on Michaelangelo :-)

    Well, I guess its been a while since I found Michael and Im happy to say that he's ok and only because this forum has a lot to do with it. I don't think he would have ever survive without you peeps... I think im gonna cry:-(

    Tonight is a little especial I guess...Tonight, he finaly ate a pinky without any scenting...What a relief. No more slug hunting and worrying everyday about what he's gonna eat....Im so relieved....

    Other than that, he's shed atleast 4 times since I found him, but I think the first was due to stress?

    He has also gotten away a few times which always makes me real upset and sad, because each time it happens, it seems like im never gonna find him; it's like finding a needle in a heystack, specially with Michael being such a small snake. But it's hard to believe they do show up again. I just hope my luck never runs out...

    I bet right now, he's cooking up another plan to get out. I know, because that's all he does. He stares at the ceiling and just ponders how to get out. What an unloyal pet! I guess that's y he's a snake...

    I wish I could find him a friend so he's not always trying to get out.. I saw a cool Gecko at the petshop. Can I put that inside with him?

    No...you shouldn't put a gecko in with a snake. You could only put another garter snake of the same size and gender in with him. I am wondering why he keeps getting out. What kind of enclosure do you have him in and what type of lid do you have on the enclosure?

    2 best things you can ever do for your snake...

    1. Never put any other species of animal in the same enclosure, the Gecko will likely kill the snake.

    2. secure the cage, prevention of escape is essential. What if you accidentally stepped on him while he was out exploring?

    Exactly Wayne...I am very concerned about the fact that the snake keeps getting out...if nothing else, one of these times you may not get the snake back . Tell us what kind of lid you are using and we can help you make it more secure so that he doesn't get out anymore.

    I think I know how he gets out but I thought I covered that problem.


    But what a coincidence, I caught him red handed yesterday, trying to get out. I took some pics and will post later..

    One thing is for sure, he always does it after feeding. I guess it's because he's got energy again....

    If you caught him getting out you should be able to make the necessary adaptions to the lid to stop him doing it again. But don't assume he's only got the one option.

    Knowing garter snakes... after one of his escapes he smuggled in a miniature glass cutter (secreted in his vent, maybe he's been watching prison documentaries?) and has cut a small hole near the back of the tank where you can't see it.

    Seriously, if you need some ideas for ways to keep him in, post the pics and we can see how we can help advise on closing off the escape routes.
