The California Red-Sided Garter is, in our opinion, one of the most beautiful garter snakes. Rivaled only by the San Francisco garter snake in color, the bright red and black bars traverse the entire body, with a distinct turquoise or yellowish dorsal stripe. The Neon Blue variant has been selected to enhance this turqoise striping, and even the belly is blue! Gorgeous! This species is found solely in California, traversing almost the entire state's coastal region. Adult females average 30-38", males 14-18" . In the wild their diet mainstay is red legged frogs but they will also eat tadpoles, fish, worms and rodents. Our adults feed soley on rodents.
