Hi, I asked for help ID'ing my garter when I first aquired her last year. We never really got a positive ID. I took the stance of Oh-well as long as I can keep her happy and healthy it doesn't matter, BUT I'm still very curious as to what exactly she is! I'm not even positive whether she's garter or ribbon, but I've always leaned towards garter. She has two, slightly seperated, dots on top of her head. The very slight pattern on the black areas range from blue to yellow. No red whatsoever. You really only see this pattern after she's fed. She was wild caught(not by me) just northeast of Sacramento, Ca. If you have any other questions, please ask!
