First snake I ever kept was a wc garter when I was in the 6th grade. He had an awesome appetite and would always eat when food was offered. I kept him in a 15 gallon aquarium with a potting soil mixture as a substrate. I had some live plants in with him, a hide, and a margarine type container for water. He ate tadepoles, frogs, minnows and goldfish. I had very little idea of what I was doing and did not even have a warm side or cool side (this was 25 years ago). He thrived and grew ALOT! I kept him about 8 months and let him go in late spring of the following year.
