Under – Species – you can find all the different species or subspecies of Gartersnakes and Watersnakes I am currently breeding or that I hope to breed in the coming season.
I will update the list when changes occur.
A number of interesting and unknown (sub) species have recently been added to my collection. Thamnophis chrysocephalus and Thamnophis sumchrasti from Veracruz, Mexico. Nerodia taxispilota from the south-east of the USA. A group of Nerodia sipedon sipedon from Maryland, USA from parent animals with quite a lot of red in the pattern.
Information on the different species.
For each (sub)species I am breeding I will give some short characteristics about behavior in captivity, coloration and ease of maintenance. As you can see I have not been able to do that for all species, so this is work in progress (my apologies). I will also make some remarks about the original population they originate from (if known of course) and about their natural habitat. When there is ( * ) behind the species name information will follow soon…
Garter Snakes (Thamnophis)
Breeding programs have been set up with the following (sub)species:
