On April 10, 2014 the WooFPAK went for a Free Ranging adventure in the woods and through the stream where the WooFDriver found this Garter Snake(Thamnophis) on the trail. Garter Snakes are closely related to water snakes, with some species moving back and forth between genera. This is a harmless snake that populate a variety of habitats including woodlands, fields and lawns. But they also stay close to some form of water like a wetland, stream, or pond.
