Snakes?! I Hate Snakes!

Walkabout snapped this photo of a garter snake during one of her cleanup cruises of Tubbs Hill last week, while I was on vacation. Walkabout's main man, Stickman, tells Huckleberries that there are numerous small boas and gartner snakes on Tubbs Hill. And that he knows of a young girl who regularly catches snakes and lizards on Tubbs to serve as pets. During that vacation, I argued with Junior and Miss Stephanie -- in the middle of the Paynes Prairie swamp that was teeming with alligators, snakes, heron, wild buffalo, wild pigs, and other critters -- that there aren't many snakes in North Idaho. Junior said there were plenty. He may be right.

Question: What kind of snakes do you encounter here in the panhandle?
