:GREAT FINDS! You keep that (presumed)hypo garter? That was one good looking snake. Great pics too! happy herping. Andy
Thanks! No, I didn't keep the garter....I have nowhere to put him! I guess I could have kept him in a sterilite container, but I just didn't. I know where I found him and I might be able to find him again (I've found a few checkered garters numerous times at this place). I'll post pics on the garter snake forum and see what everyone thinks. Maybe I'll ask Scott Felzer....he's a Thamnophis expert!
