This is an Eastern garter snake. These nonvenomous snakes are pretty common in South Carolina and are active most of the year. They feed primarily on frogs, toads, worms, slugs, and even fish and tadpoles. If threatened, they may try to bite, but their jaws are not strong enough to harm people or pets. Overall, these are good snakes to have around. To read more about Eastern garter snakes, click here.
