All Coiled Up (Ringneck Snake) by 

This is a Ringneck Snake. These are very small snakes rarely exceeding 15 inches in length. They are harmless although this species does have a slight venom to subdue their small prey. Their prey consists of small salamanders, small frogs, earthworms, snails, slugs, and other invertebrates. They are found over a wide portion of North America where their colors vary widely. One thing that all subspecies have in common is that they have that ring around their neck. This paticular one would be the Northeastern subspecies.

This was taken in McDonough State Forest
in Chenango County NY.

    I too consider myself a self-taught naturalist…I appreciate the time that you take to describe your work.

  • Thank you sillyfrog! I thought your grandchildren probably appreciate your love for the “creepy crawlies”. :)

    Excellent shot Robert! :) Better you than me! :) I’m not sort of a snake fan and get a little stressed when these guys are around! :) He certainly has an interesting pattern around the neck! :)

  • Thank you Gabe! I know when I post snakes they won’t be the most popular and can’t rival the loveable chipmunks (lol).

    This lady is the first species of snake I ever held. This was BEFORE I knew they were related to the Corals :o)
    Being such a delicate and small snake…it amazes me the do fall into a venemous category. Luckily…because they ARE so small…they’re harmless to us. :o) We have an area here locally that has boards lying directly on the ground…durring the summer my son and I go and lift them to find huge gatherings of these lovely snakes. The males have such gorgeous undersides and they’re all so silky smooth and shiney. A lovely photo Robert!

  • Thank you Carla!
