I was thrilled to find this awesome Ringneck snake. It has grey color with orange ring in the neck. But the underside is bright orange and the tail is red. They are best known for their unique defense posture of curling up their tails, exposing their bright red-orange posterior, ventral surface when threatened. I was lucky because Ring-necked snakes are secretive, nocturnal snakes, so are rarely seen during the day time. They are slightly venomous. 60 cm long.
