What do garter snakes eat?

I mentioned the other day in the And… we’re back! post that one of our dogs is a good snake catcher and that she’s catching pretty tame snakes.  I may need to recall that statement.  I’ve often wondered what the garter snakes eat.  I now know the answer and I also now know why the garter snakes in our yard are so large.

See for yourself.

  1. I’m still traumatized by the image and sound of a snake eating a frog when I was about my older daughter’s age…the sound the frog made right before he/she was swallowed was so disturbing. Thanks for the reminder…now I have to call my therapist….JK 🙂
