Southern Ring-necked Snake

Diadophis punctatus punctatus


About 4 inches long. Underside was yellow.


sidewalk in woods between parking lot and park


Adults grow to be about 15 inches long. From Wikipedia: Secretive, nocturnal snakes, and rarely seen during the day time. They are slightly venomous, but their nonaggressive nature and small, rear-facing fangs pose little threat to humans who wish to handle them. Scientific research is lacking for the ring-necked snake, and more in-depth investigations are greatly needed. <spotted by my adult child>
