Repty is an orphaned garter snake that lives in an aquarium in Patrick’s bedroom. Repty is the best friend of Snootle and Patrick. Repty’s parents got taken away by a pet store owner after he was born and were sold. All alone, he was left to wander the streets and didn’t even have a name. He took refuge in Snootle’s back yard. Patrick found the little garter snake and named him Repty. Repty was pleased that he found someone who didn’t recoil in terror at the sight of him.
