    Male or female?

    This little one was born back in August/September and is wild caught. I'm wondering if anyone has some guesses at the sex? It's very wiggly and nervous, so the pictures aren't great, but I tried to get the vent and whole tail in as best as possible.

    My first impression was female. Is this a sirtalis?

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

    Portland, OR. She is one of approximately 10-15 that were born around August/September. It was the second group born that I know of. We have two large females in the backyard who produce every year. They're doing very well out there but they've gotten so numerous that the dog finds them all the time and tries to kill them.
