Scott Felzer's Garter Snakes, Specializing in Aberrant Garters


Welcome to the official web site of Scott Felzer's Garter Snakes!

Available AnimalsGarter snakes,  once  considered  soley a beginner's  snake,  are becoming more and more popular as  pets. Garter snakes make great pets, from beginners to even the most advanced   hobbyist.   They   are   small   by colubrid  standards  (rarely exceeding 4 feet in  length),   inquisitive   by   nature,  diurnal, colorful, docile  and  can be fed a varied diet of fish/worms/rodents (see caresheet). They are  easy  to  care  for and do well in  captivity, with an average lifespan of 10 years.
