In Reply to: Indonesian Gartersnake question... posted by cindyrads on March 09, 2003 at 19:43:13:
:I have a few gartersnakes and picked a new one up at Petco today. This snake was labeled as a garter and I've been trying to ID it all afternoon. Someone from the gartersnake listed told me it was a Indonesian watersnake. Following that lead I ended up here. Does anyone have a pic or a website that has some pics of these snakes? I haven't found much info on them but the few bits and peices I've found lead me to believe that she is a Indonsian garter snake (Xenochrophis vittata). If indeed she is then I also need proper care info. I don't have a pic but this is a descripton of her.
:Her belly is black and white striped. Looks like a zebra. Down her back is a thin black strip, on either side of this strip is a goldish brown strip, below the goldish brown strip is a black strip and then it goes into her belly colors. Her neck is also very thin compared to her head size. I fed her rosies soon after I got her home and she ate them immediately. So we know she is a fish eater. :)
:Thanks for any help!!
yeah it sounds like an indonesian garter,i had two of them.
there rear fanged and cool little snake's they can be kept like normal garter's from the state's.
