CENTRAL FLORIDA CRITTER OF THE DAY: Southern Ringneck Snake (Diadophis punctatus punctatus) NON-VENOMOUS, lays eggs. Must be snake week at my place. This is new for my reptile life list. Little and thin so perhaps a hatchling. I nearly missed it on the patio. not the best photo, he was hellbent on getting under the steps once he saw me with a camera.
Diet: small earthworms, slugs, frogs, anoles, geckos, skinks, snakes, and salamanders (source: http://www.flmnh.ufl.edu/herpetology/fl-snakes/list/diadophis-punctatus-punctatus/)
