Ring in the new!
Garter snakes are born live, so this little one probably has some siblings (and maybe even a mom) hanging around.
Garters are also mildly venomous, but they don't have fangs so they like to keep chewing when they bite something. People's response to the venom varies, in my experience, from a mild itch (me) to something resembling an allergic reaction (our daughter).
