Snakes

  1. How do I avoid getting bit by a snake?

    Avoid getting close to snakes, even though some snakes are non-venomous. They will do no damage, but if you can't tell venomous snakes apart, remember this: If their eyes are slit, don't get bit. If their eyes are round, no venom found. ~Jim Fregonara

  2. What do small garter snakes eat?

    Small garter snakes will eat crickets, minnows, and worms. You can house a minnow in their water dish, if it is big enough. Crickets can be housed in the terrerium itsself, along with the worms. Snakes can detach their jaw bone, allowing them to swallow large worms or crickets. Also, try coating your worms and crickets in a supplement before feeding.
