Fun Facts:

 

  • The Gartersnake at our interpretative center is still small (they can grow up to 40 inches long), but is very tough and has a lot of attitude!
  • They are mainly aquatic and eat primarily small fish.
  • They are diurnal (active during the day), but can also be active during the night during warmer weather.
  • They are known to expel a combination of unpleasant musk and urine when handled as their defense.
  • Their coloration is a combination of drab olive, brown and dark gray with a yellowish lateral stripe on each side.
