Question:
Which snake is the only one found naturally with the Artic Circle?


Replies:
I checked the Peterson Field Guide and can't find any snake normally living within the Arctic Circle in North America, red-sided garter snakes range to about 61 degrees north, just barely into the Northwest territories but well short of the arctic circle. I don't have any information on Asian snakes.
