Hi Cheryl. This is a great sighting. Red-bellied Snakes are poorly understood in Connecticut. They are probably more common than we think but records are scattered throughout the state. I would like to add this record to the Herpetological Education and Research Project. We maintain a database of records for North American herps. If you are interested in allowing me to enter this record, please contact me at ctherpatlas at gmail dot com.

Wow, that's a big one! All of the ones I have seen have been much smaller. It must be living good there :) I found a really small one in Atlanta, GA
