As a teen I found a wild garter snake while hiking in the mountains. I thought it would be funny to take it home to surprise my mom with it. Boy was she surprised! Afterward I noticed the snake throwing up (I didn't think I scared him that bad!). I didn't know why it was throwing up. But, after reading this simple book, now I do!

Lots of fun facts and interesting tidbits about garter snakes. I encounter them quite often while in the mountains so I'm glad to know more about them.

First photos are poor quality, but the rest are great. Chapters and paragraphs with grey formatting and pretty interesting content.
