I found a nest of the strangest garter snakes outside and put them in a basket in my room to keep them safe. Today the mother (or is it the father?) returned and found where I put them. I thought it would be a little more appreciative of my concern, but its hissing keeps me up at night and I've given up trying to give the babies milk. Here's the latest photo but, as you'll see, the parent hogs the camera.
