Red-bellied Snake

Storeria occipitomaculata

Description:

"The Red-bellied Snake is a small woodland snake, ranging from 4 - 10 in (10 - 25 cm) long. This species is one of our most variably-colored snakes, with some individuals ranging from bright orange to brown, gray, or nearly black. Occasionally individuals are found that are gray with a brown or orange stripe down the center of the back. Many individuals have a light brown ring behind the head. This species can easily be distinguished from all other small woodland snakes by their unmarked bright orange to red underside."

Habitat:

Found under rock in open dry woodland.

Notes:

It was cloudy.
