Nerodia sipedon sipedon
A stout banded snake with red and brown coloration. Scales are heavily keeled and eyes are set toward the top of the head. Neonates and juveniles are typically more patterned as coloring can fade into a solid dull brown as the snake reaches adulthood.
Found wintering under a rock with a Marbled Salamander and two Spring Peepers.
