Well I haven't gotten the garter yet. But I did get a little more information....there is only one not two, so I am happy about that actually.
And apparently he said its a "Texas Ribbon Snake" When I looked up info for this all I could find was the Western Ribbon snake and very little at that. I guess I will have to do a proper ID when I get him. Thanks for all the wonderful information guys!
I hope I warm up to them too!
