Northwestern Garter Snake

Thamnophis ordinoides

Near Rodney Falls in SW Washington I found this snake
catching some shade on the path. Since it's non-poisonous
I walked right past it. Diet is primarily slugs and earthworms.

Found its brother at the French Creek watershed.


Habitat: wet grassy areas, forests, thickets
