San Bernadino Ring-necked Snake

Diadophis punctatus modestus

This small snake is found in most habitats in the region, especially in moist areas. Ring-necked snakes are semi-fossorial, meaning they spend a fair amount of their life underground. Because of this, they are rarely seen on the surface, typically found under rocks, logs, or artifical cover. Active year round, most active March - October.
