Looking closely it looks like paint/charcoal has been rubbed on her face... Mother Nature is wicked awesome.

A 4 photo series celebrating Wadjet's (the mother of the captive born garter snake babies Demigod, Noland, Prometheus, and Fay) first shed of the year!
I had thought she would shed after coming out of brumation (snake hibernation) but she never did. It also took her longer to eat than it should have, due to her being very picky, so that may have had something to do with it. Also, she may just be a very old girl. There is no telling since I brought her under my care as an adult. 

Species: Thamnophis sirtalis
Common Name: Eastern Garter Snake

Maybe she won't take as long next year.  Is she eating regularly again?

Yep. I'm getting her bigger mice to eat this time around from the reptile show. Try to make sure she is well fed before she goes into brumation again.

Summer is short. And damn, this weird weather we're having doesn't help any.

Yeah.  There was a point a few weeks ago where the nights were getting 50F and below. >.>  Now they're back to normal, but the temps will be going down again not too long from now.
