Stripy has a penchant for earth worms.
The other evening I was watching Stripey rooting through the mulch. I could tell he was hungry. So I dug up some earth worms to feed to him.
Yumm yummm. He was quite happy to have them. After he ate 4 earthworms,
he looked at me as if to say, OK what is for dessert.
I have read that Eastern Garter snakes eat mostly earth worms, toads and frogs. I had one of these snakes in the garden last year and had hardly no slug damage or snail damage on my hostas. I think they must eat these too. In the photo below you can see him staring at an empty snail shell. He could have been sitting still so I wouldn't see him. Clever fellow (fellowette).
Have you had any wildlife in your garden lately?
