This ringneck snake was found in a temperate forest under a rock. Ringnecks are nocturnal and sociable (i.e., you'll often find more than one living together). They eat lizards, frogs, salamanders, insects and small rodents. They serve as prey for many animals including raccoons, opossums, skunks, shrews, toads, hawks, owls and other snakes.
