Northern Redbelly Snake

Storeria occipitomaculata


The Northern Redbelly snake is a small colubrid native to the Nova Scotia down to Florida and out to Texas. They're a small species usually not reaching lengths above 12 inches. Their diet consists of soft bodied arthropods like slugs and earthworms.


This species is often found in leaf litter, under logs, or in brush piles. They're are fairly common within their range.


Usually when the warmer seasons come around each year, the first snakes I find or are called to come get are this species and small brown snakes. They're pretty snakes with a bright orange or red belly. They give birth to live young and are only known to have a lifespan of about 4 years.
