    Red wigglers(Eisenia fetida) are bad for them. They produce a toxic fluid when defending themselves. Nightcrawlers, earthworms and slugs are good foods. Aspen shavings can be ingested and cause all kinds of trouble, even death. Stay away from anything pine also.

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