Ringneck by mydigitalmind Ringneck by mydigitalmind
Ringneck Snakes are typically found under flat rocks - and that is exactly where I found this one. I lifted up this rock with the intention of supporting a new feeder pole, but it was already in use by this snake. Of course I had to get the camera for a few shots before I gave him his cover back.

They are mildly venomous, however, they are not aggressive.

Oh the irony. I just found a baby ringneck in our dining room last night. Freaked us out a little bit;) They are pretty cute though...
