The garter-snake (Eutaenia sirtalis) f-abotunding, as it does, in every State r of the Unlon, and, indeed, throughout a orth America-is too common to need ubdescription. In the latter part of March or early in April the male is in his best spirits and finest condition. If at this time you at tempt to capture him, he will flatter oon himself out so as to appear twice his us uon nal size, and strike with amazing vim ctly and rapidity for so small an animal. I Sof have had the blood drip from a finger kg lacerated by their sharp little teeth. ch Toward the end of summer the female an brings forth alive from twenty to thirty ring young. They exactly resemble their i of parent at birth, and are about seven and time a half inches long. They are covered and with a thin, transparent membrane, ten- out of which they soon force their way. The young snakes feed on angle worms and soft-bodied insects. As they his- increase in size they adopt their adult food-viz., frogs, toads, salamanders and small reptiles of all kinds, young birds and field mice, and, when obtain he able, small fishes. In captivity I have succeeded in getting them to devour ram beef by moving it about with a fine wire gr The snakes, believing it to be alive, seize and swallow it. r Now a word about this swallowing process. Strictly speaking, r snake' does not " swallow," but crawls over its the food. Both upper and lower jaws are freely movable and controlled by appro priate muscles. Having seized its prey, one upper jaw is moved forward, and the teeth, which all point backward, ve? firmly fixed, the e jaw of the oppo .site ride in the uamanner thou the t ower Jaws act it the me way, nn'tbe objeous swallowed, the sius-: tles of the neck meanwhile forcing the serpent's body forward over that of itl elks tictim. Snakes, it is well known, are able to Sto go a long time without food; not so Slong, however, as is usually thought. I sen think none of our common species could ,on- exist through even a single season with oth- out eating. The loeomotive apparatus tly of serpents is very beautiful. Each ver er tebra (except the caudal) is supplied hop with a pair of freely movable ribs, the I'd lower extremities of which are attached to the broad, movable belly-scales sencua), each of which slightly under ar lies the preceding one. Each rib is sup ir plied with a set of muscles, too complex un- to describe here. When the, ribs are t pulled forward, of course the scula a move with them,e their smooth surfaces e taking no hold on the ground. When, nd however, the muscles act in a counter di direction, their sharp edges take firm hold, and the body is propelled for ward. ro- Garter-snakes, like all ophidians, the change their skins; not once a year, as dae- is generally supposed, but three, five, or even more times in a season, according to age and condition. nes I have many times witnessed this pro ad? cess of undressing. By stretching the you jaws wide open and violently working ve the labials (lip scales) the skin is broken er, from about the lips. Then, by rubbing the head against the ground or con venient object, it is forced backward to ght the neck, whence it is unrolled from the up rest of the body by the snake crawling a like an earth worm (i. e., contracting .l and extending the body) completely out ver of its old dress, assisting the operation i. by rubbing against stones and twigs. By blowing into the "neck" of this empty "slough," it may be for as moment in s fited looking like the ghost of its for What the term of life in the Eutauniai may be is, in the nat*re of things, some what hard to determine; but, udging from their alow growth, I think that Sthirty or fotty years would be within limits. je The pridpadll diseases to which they seem to be subjeot are a fungoid growth of a soft, mucouns character, which grows aronanad ain the mouth, soon csg the aimal to waste away and , die, and a disease of the skin and super nola musles, which gives the poor san SIntmel the appearance of being caked with white crey.
