Garter Snakes
There is so much action in the springtime. In Lac du Bonnet, Manitoba, Anne heard there was a nest of garter snakes in the neighbors yard. "I went over and had a look. They said there was a big female in the middle of this swarm of snakes somewhere but I didn't get to see her. I did see what I believe are all these male snakes that were there to mate with her. One appeared to be keeping an eye on me!" Because garder snakes bear their young live, females are generally larger than males. 04/26/13
