Garter Snake Den First vVew

The Animals in Distress folks requested a collegue and I respond to a complaint about garter snakes denning in someone’s basement in a nearby community. This was our first view of the snakes as we descended the steep stairway. I suspect the snakes had fallen into the cellar by accident and the temperature was cold enough for them to enter hibernation. The owner wanted them removed. She had apparently called a “pest-control” person who declined to take out the snakes because he’s “afraid of snakes.” Western wandering terrestrial garter snake (Thamnophis elegans vagrans). Please check the next four pictures in the ecosnake photostream on Flickr for more about these snakes and what happened. Photo by Frank
