About Northern Ringneck Snakes

The northern ringneck snake (Diadophis punctatus edwardsii) is a potentially venomous snake found throughout southern Canada and Northeastern United States. I say 'potentially' because this snake has never been universally accepted by researchers as venomous. If the snake is indeed venomous, the potency of the venom is very slight. Some humans who have received bites from northern ringneck snakes report a burning sensation at the bite site. Northern ringnecks vary in size from under 10 inches to over 24 inches in length.

Northern ringnecks are nocturnal and social, meaning they tend to gather in groups, particularly during the day. This species prefers moist wooded areas. Northern ringnecks prey on small reptiles, small amphibians, slugs, worms, and insects. They are themselves prey for large amphibians, predatory birds, and mammals ranging in sive from black bears to shrews. When they are first born, young northern ringnecks are hunted by large centipedes and spiders as well.
