Baby ringneck snake season is underway

The week before last Wayne called me to let me know that he had found several baby ringneck snakes at his place. Meanwhile, I've noticed several recent hits on the previous ringneck snake post on this blog. You can view that post here:

The adults can sometimes be found by lifting flat stones, logs or boards. They are harmless to humans, but be aware that they will discharge a foul smelling fluid if you try to handle them roughly.

If the young enter ground-level rooms they can become entrapped in thick spider webs and carpeting. A search along floor boards or around ground-level doors will sometimes turn up trapped young.
