The Garter snake is the most widely distributed snake in North America. There are a variety of subspecies but most are easily recognizable by the yellow stripes. They mate primarily in the spring but occasionally in the fall further North. 5-85 live young are born in June - October, again the further North, the later the birth. The young average 7", and will mature in approximately 2 years. Garter Snakes are frequently kept as pets, and breed easily in captivity.
