Does anybody here have experience with both garters and pits that can chime in on metabolic rates? I keep pits and their metabolism is really high. It seems like everyday I was cleaning poop out of the cage. I know in general colubrids have a higher metabolic rate than, say, pythons or boas. How do garter snakes fare, in terms of a messy cage, feeding rates, etc. Thanks.
