Gartersnake.info was born of a realization that accurate information about the care of garter snakes in captivity was badly needed. First launched in 2004, it has existed in a semi-unfinished state ever since.
Who’s Responsible for This?
Jonathan Crowe grew up in Winnipeg, Manitoba, where he began keeping Red-sided Garter Snakes at the age of eight. Here’s a picture of him from that period, mucking around at the snake dens near Narcisse, Manitoba. After a long hiatus, Jonathan got back into snake keeping with a vengeance in 1999; a year later, he picked up where he left off as a child with his first love: garter snakes.
The information presented on this website is the product of the research and first-hand experience of the authors, and is, to the best of our belief and knowledge, correct. But we’re not professional herpetologists, veterinarians or zookeepers, and we could be wrong. Our experiences may not match yours. There’s a lot about garter snakes, and snakes in general, that hasn’t been discovered yet. We’re trying our best, here, and we’re not knowingly providing false information, but please keep that in mind.
