These are some pictures of my breeding group of Thamnophis sirtalis pickeringii, the Puget Sound Garter Snake.
Some pictures were taken mid december 2019, directly after they ended their 3 months hibernation. Mating activity and locks were seen (picture 1 and 2). Picture 3 shows the group basking after a good meal. Picture 4 shows 2 specimens that just shed for the first time.
Pictures 5 and 6 were taken february 25th 2020 after the second shed of 1 of the females. Unfortunately the pictures do not show the intense blue colors, but check out the difference between recently shed and not shed in picture 5.
