    I should have added that Garter snakes are different than many others in that they will happily eat mice , fish , worms ... or dog food ..

    I know I've read that about garters, that they'll even eat dog food, but that seems pretty bold, just helping themselves to the dog's bowl. So different from the often-picky BPs.
    King snakes are pretty "open-minded" too. (carrion, etc)

    I did research it afterwards and found some cases online of unscrupulous Garter breeders who actually fed their hatchlings on dog food as it was a cheap and easy option to get them to a selling size .


    Not recommended though , nutritionally

    No, I wouldn't think of doing that, if I kept garters, & I'm glad you added that, for anyone else who might be tempted. Just not a "best practice".

    He's doing that 'males found in trees hunting birds' pose. Poor dude is probably hungry but I'm not feeding him until I know the power isn't going to go out. Found him like this this morning and has been there all morning. He's scared me at first when I went in to mist. I didn't see him at all LOL. He was good and didn't strike at me. Surprising since I waved my hand right in front of him when I didn't notice him.

    I might not have seen him either, he really blends in! Glad he didn't tag ya. Way better to make sure the power is reliable before feeding any snakes right now.

    I too have a banana that does this, nobody ever told her that she is a ball python and supposed to not climb around more than hide away. Did somebody sneak arboreal genes into the banana lines? She is by far my best eater too, absolutely never refuses a meal even in shed. She is just a weirdly colored retic as far as she is concerned.

    Makes total sense to me, bananas do grow on trees, yah?
