However, Thamnophis sirtalis
(Common Gartersnakes) are not uncommon in Crater Lake National Park and are often found on the lakeshore (elevation approximately [greater than or equal to] 1900 m) as well as in other areas of the park (Farner and Kezer 1953).

Fitting said the garter, whose full name is Thamnophis sirtalis
tetretaenia, has decidedly aggressive eating habits: he grabs, coils and constricts his prey.
Like other male vertebrates, the red-sided garter snake, Thamnophis sirtalis
parietalis, owes its sex drive to the hormone testosterone.

The population of Taricha granulosa from Soap Creek Ponds, Benton County, Oregon has a very the high toxicity level (up to 28 mg of TTX) and has only a single successful predator, Thamnophis sirtalis

Laboratory experiments in which snakes were offered earthworm prey in either the presence or absence of an environmental variable that may increase habitat complexity, indicated that overall foraging behavior of Thamnophis sirtalis
sirtalis did not differ significantly between treatments: however, foraging success was significantly higher in a completely barren environment.
A striking form of polymorphism is found in the common garter snake, Thamnophis sirtalis
