Description

I want to make sure this is not a Shorthead Garter Snake though. Does anybody have an idea if it could be a Short Head Garter Snake?

Your observation is a bit southeast of the natural range of Thamnophis brachystoma.

Yes I agree and I have many positive IDs of Easter Garters here. There's also a spot where they're seen in mating balls each spring. I might try and see if I can catch them in the act this spring.
