Red-bellied snake

Storeria occipitomaculata


Redish brown snake with slightly darker stripes lengthwise with salmon-coloured belly. About 35cm (14 inches) long.


Hiding out in my woodpile with the garter snakes (mixed woodland).


Much paler than ones I've seen before and belly not as red, also larger, but I'm pretty sure it is a red-bellied snake. The only other snake it could be is a DeKay's brown snake but those are supposed to have black spots on the back.
