The Garter Snake is one of the most well known. They often have very bright colors that make them attractive. They do have venom but they don’t bite humans very often at all. The toxin they do release is harmless though and they give off only a tiny bit of it when they do release it. Even though the Garter Snake has very sharp teeth, they aren’t dangerous. They do look mean in some ways though which is why people like to keep them as pets.
They can have something that looks unique and wild but that really is quite safe to have around.The distribution for this snake is wide scale and it is the biggest of all reptiles found around North America. This is the only known species of snake to naturally live in Alaska. They are highly adaptable though both to location and diet so they are often found living in some of the strangest places. They have declined in the natural world though due to too many bullfrogs out there. They are also heavily taken from the natural habitat and used for the pet trade. This has led to some species becoming endangered in the wild.
