Eastern Garter Snake near Pebble Beach

Some 17 species of snakes are found in Ontario but, to the best of our knowledge, the very widespread Eastern Garter Snake is the only one that inhabits the north shore of Superior. We found this individual on a sunny afternoon along the trail to the lagoon, east of Pebble Beach. Garter snakes in our region often show some reddish pigmentation on the flanks, as this one did.
