Scott’s Garter Snake are been found in Lake Magdalene.
This lake lies at 1380 meters altitude in the Mexican state of Jalisco, and it forms the remains of a lake that was once much bigger.
In November 2007, I observed this subspecies in Mexico.
The animals are mainly found in and alongside the lake.
It is a beautiful sight to these large Garter Snakes with broad strokes seen swim and floating on the water.
One of the females was huge and would be, with a complete tail, about 128 cm long; a new record!
