Description

Another great 2 in 1 finder under one of our coverboards; another Ringneck Snake and another lark Tiger Centiped that we found under the same coverboard in a mostly open meadow, bordered by scrub at the top of the hill, and a small ravine at the base of the slope, during a warm (80+ degree F), sunny morning. This was our third Rengneck Snake at the site for that day, and this one too musked all over the hands of the person whom wrangeled it. Unfortunately, no photos were taken of the 2nd Ringneck thatwas found several minutes earlier, since it was able to rapidly disappear into the grass after absorbing the late morning heat.

Description

A large (approximately 40+ cm long) Ringneck Snake that was found under a coverboard on a very warm (80+ degree F), sunny morning. It quickly bolted and vanished in the nearby grasses after this photo was taken.

Really tried to convince me it was dead. :-)

Neck ring was faint/less obvious - does this matter? Subspecies ID based on range map: http://www.californiaherps.com/identification/snakesid/ringnecks.id.html

Description from Wikipedia

The ring-necked snake or ringneck snake, Diadophis punctatus, is a species of colubrid snake found throughout much of the United States, central Mexico, and southeastern Canada. Ring-necked snakes are secretive, nocturnal snakes, so are rarely seen during the day time.
