Garter Snakes should now be in a warm place...

 Time to hibernate for Garter Snakes
Garter Snakes usually hibernate in October are now likely underground somewhere trying to stay warm.   They may be over-wintering alone or in a hibernaculum with more than a hundred, or more, other snakes and staying there until spring.  They will coil themselves into a ball, not eat anything and stay in a state of torpor throughout the winter.

Please comment if you wish.
