Went out today looking for garters in my backyard. Acres upon Acres of land that includes: Ponds, streams, creeks, dense vegitation, large mounds of dirt, rotten logs, fallen trees, Ditches, frogs, toads, fish and so much more! And all I found was the remaining piece of tail from a garter snake :( I know they are out there but where @ and when? Does anyone know? Can anyone help me?
