San Francisco garter snake, Thamnophis sirtalis tetrataenia. Federal- and State-listed endangered species. San Mateo County, California. Considered one of the most beautiful snakes in North America, San Francisco garter snakes had the misfortune of evolving in what would become one of the most densely-populated areas of the country. They now live only in a few isolated populations on the San Francisco peninsula.
