    (Distant) future snake owner here... hi!

    Hey! My name's Raegan. I recently discovered the crazy amount of diversity in the Common Garter Snake (13 recognized subspecies! Wow!) and, upon doing further research, decided I wanted to own one as a pet (someday). So here I am! About me: Fish tank maniac (which explains my username, plus it's also the name of my blog), central Texas, currently a senior in high school, planning on studying Aquatic Biology in college. I figure that I'll be able to actually own a garter snake of my own after college, but until then I want to learn as much as I can, pick up tips and tricks, and get to know people who are current owners. So... hello!

    Great to have you with us. A good place to start would be the care sheet. Any additional questions can be posted to the members.

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

    Thanks! I was suuuuuper nervous about actually starting a thread, I was lurking for like a week before actually creating an account, and then lurked for another couple of days before introducing myself. Anyone here going to Repticon in Houston (January 11-12)? I am! I hope that someone will bring garters, just so that I can get a good look at one up close!

    There is nothing to be nervous about posting here, we are like a big family with an open door.

    I've found that most online communities are, but that doesn't seem to take away that rush of uncertainty when one first introduces oneself. So, what is there to do for non-snake owners? It's not like I can offer any advice (unless someone needs help with planted aquariums! I'm great at those!) as I've only even held a snake a handful of times.

    So tell us what drew you to aquatic biology?

    Have you heard about the plans to dredge shipping lanes in the barrier reef?
