Great stuff Amphibian!

How many species of Garters do you keep at the moment, and which do you find easiest and most difficult?

I always enjoying seeing lesser known species doing well in captivity.

Thanx for sharing and well done. I cant wait to see the babies!

The Boulengeri hatched this morning.

Six fat healthy babies. Unfortunately checked them just before work this morning so only managed a few quick pics.
Will get a few better ones once they have shed.

Well done Chris. You really are the Elapsoidea aficionado!

Thank you chaps.
Enjoying working with elapsoidea. On a personal level it has been very rewarding.
Hoping next season to reproduce 1 or 2 new species from this genus. fingers crossed.
