Diadophis punctatus punctatus, 29 March 2014

Diadophis punctatus punctatus, the Southern ringneck snake;
Lake county, Florida (29 March 2014).

The Southern ringneck is a small, stealthy, most-subterranean subspecies fairly abundant in the American southeast, especially in Florida. They spend most of their time buried somewhat beneath surface detritus but can sometimes be seen slinking about the ground at night and after a nice rain.
