Captive bred similis garter snakes (Thamnophis sirtalis similis) 2 females and a male. Eventually as they get older I'll set them up with a nicer naturalistic enclosure, but for now since they're tiny little wirey and easily-lost things, they're just on paper towels with water bowls. I just got them in the mail today, so waiting a few days before offering their meals with me. They're supposedly doing well on strips of supplemented fish right now, and I plan on raising them with fish fillet strips, worms, and true silversides, etc. When they're older they'll look more like their adult counterparts... cant wait to see how blue they'll look!! Since at this age, they're all about the same shade of color, and there can be a huge variety in shades of blues when they grow up even within the same litter.
