Red-bellied Snake

Storeria occipitomaculata

Description:

Lifer! This cute little gal would do what is known as "bull dogging" when I would hold her, which means curling up the top lip to look more threatening (photo 1). An orange-brown back with faint spots and a red or orange belly.

Habitat:

Flipped under a piece of tin in a mostly oak forest.
