I have owned this snake for 2 years. I purchased it from someone in Oregon who got it from the previous owner who got it from a PetCo in Palm Desert Calif. It was sold to me as a Garter Snake but obviously it is not. It feeds on fish but I immediately started feeding it f/t mice and it is a hardy eater. It does not bite but it hisses and strikes with its mouth closed. I believe it is a European Natrix such as a Grass or Dice Snake. I would love to get a positive ID and even narrow down subspecies if I can. I would appreciate ANY information I can get.
