The presence of garter snakes is ubiquitous. This is especially true in wooded areas and open fields. These are swift and graceful snakes with a striking look.

Prey animals can be presented either living or dead. Dead food is a better option than live. This is the more convenient option, and it also protects your snake from the eating animal. As an added precaution, it’s best to feed your hose outside of the cage and use feeding tongs while presenting the food to the animal.
This keeps your hand out of the equation and stops you from reaching for it when you’re eating. If you decide to go with live food, you should watch while it is fed. This is because snakes with similar prey suits are more likely to attack and possibly consume one another. The perfect meal is approximately as broad as the snake is long.
Often used as a toilet as well as a place to drink and bathe, a large water bowl may accommodate all of the hoses at once. As the water becomes contaminated, be careful to replace it. They use the water for drinking as well.
Maintaining a clean home is essential for the well-being of your Thamnophis. This can only be attained via consistent cleaning of the facilities. A weekly cleaning is sufficient. The entire house has to be cleaned and disinfected many times a year to avoid the growth of bacteria.
The temperament of this kind tends to be mild and manageable. Yet there are a few cautions to keep in mind when dealing with. First of all, their vertebrae are easily broken, therefore you should never compress your hose when handling. The hose should rest easily in your hand. Make sure your hands are clean and you don’t have a food odor. Last but not least, never touch a shedding hose, and never touch a hose in the dark.

Having adequate ventilation to prevent stale air is also important, and so is finding a location that is shielded from the sun and as free of vibrations as possible.
Hunting method: Strangling food.
Way of life: Thamnophis marcianus are a day-to-day species. As compared to other types of pet snakes, garter snakes tend to be the most active. Garter snakes are nocturnal creatures that go out into their area in search of prey during the colder hours of the day.
While normally peaceful, garter snakes will run away from danger if they perceive it. If they can’t get away, they’ll make threats and resort to biting if necessary. Finally, garter snakes may defend themselves by emptying their anal glands, which also helps them to defecate. Because of this, an extremely foul odor is released.
Points of attention
It’s best to go with the little ones when shopping. Animals captured from the wild are frequently sick, stressed, and afflicted with parasites (both internal and external).
