Circle of life!

I work part time at the Anita Purves Nature Center of the Urbana Park District. Part of my job there is to help take care of the resident animals, of which there are 3 screech owls, turtles, and 4 different kinds of snakes. One of the snakes is a common garter snake. Apparently, garter snakes eat fish! I did not know this, until I had to feed our snake dinner. The first time I saw the garter snake eat fish I was completely in awe! It was so crazy cool!! The second time, I had the mind to record it.

That's AMAZING! I knew they ate frogs and bugs but not fish. And he must've been one hungry guy to eat ALL THREE!
