Information about the California Red-Sided Garter Snake:
The California Red-Sided Garter snake is a non-venomous reptile native to much of the northern, central and southern coastal regions of California, and up the coast into Oregon and Washington. Adults can grow up to about 55 inches long, but usually they are about 36 inches or smaller. This snake is mostly active during the daylight hours. While this snake has no venom, when handled it can emit a foul musky odor and bite. Like other garter snakes it feeds on smaller amphibians, fish, birds, and their eggs, small mammals, other reptiles, and small invertebrates like earthworms, slugs, and leeches. It can be found in a wide variety of habitats including mixed forests, grasslands, chaparral, open fields near farmlands usually near a pond, stream or marsh. The snake is an excellent swimmer and will often use water to escape when threatened.
