Redbelly snakes are extremely variable in color and pattern. The back of this snake can be reddish brown, tan, or nearly black. It often has a light stripe running the length of the back. Three faint orange or yellowish spots are usually present at the base of the neck and, as the name implies, the belly is either orange or red. Redbelly snakes have rough (keeled) scales.
They are usually found in moist woodlands, often under rotten logs.
