Southern Ringneck

Diadophis punctatus


Has black shiny scales on back and yellow scales on stomach until tail then it turns orange. Also there's a broken ring on the neck


The ringneck snake has one of the largest geographic ranges of any species of snake in North America. Ringnecks are found throughout the eastern two thirds of the United States from southern Canada to Florida, across the desert southwest and along most of the Pacific coast.


I found this baby snake on my driveway and to keep[ it save I brought it to the woods in my back yard and let it free.
