    How many people had a wild caught garter for their first garter? Not saying this is bad (I have a wc), just wondering.

    My first snake was a wild caught garter.....I have had many wild caught garters over the years. Wild caught garters do real well in general, tho you will have a problem feeder here and there.

    Yep. About my first 100 snakes (including garters) were wild-caught. My Mom wouldn't let me bring them in the house, so I'd carry them around in a bucket before releasing them back on our property in Missouri (where I grew up). I guess I was practicing "catch and release" before it had a name .

    My first pet was a wild caught anole (or 4-6 of them; I was around 5 and they all died when my father entrusted me with their care). Then I got more anoles last spring, one was an injured baby which eventually died of starvation after a few months, one was a very nervous girl who I think my cleaning lady accidentally let go (removed the water bottle holding the homemade top down), and then there is the anole which I still have today which recently got scared of me but is doing fine.
    I just thought I would tell you all that.

    Newts, frogs, toads, viviparous lizards.. but no WC snakes in my past, unless you count the hundred or so that I have relocated. Of course all (minus one) Finnish reptiles and amphibians were protected species, but who's going to tell a kid that. Didn't keep them long enough to kill them and I managed to raise and release over 400 common frogs over a 4-year period, so that should sort of balance it out.

    What is that one that isn't protected?
