Fine Art Drawing of a Regal Ringneck Snake


Information about the Regal Ringneck Snake:

The Regal Ringneck Snake is a subspecies of ringneck snake endemic to the southwestern United States and northern Mexico. The snake is usually grayish in color, with a dark-speckled whiteish underside becoming bright red or orange near and under the tail. The snakes are among the larger of the ringneck snake subspecies, growing from 8 to 34 inches (20 to 87 cm) long. They have smooth scales. The regal ringneck snake is found only in the desert and scrublands, and not in the surrounding moutains. Unlike other subspecies, Diadophis punctatus regalis is almost exclusively ophiophagous, which means it's diet consists primarily of other snakes, such as the earth snakes and the blackhead or flathead snakes. They have enlarged rear teeth (opisthoglypha) and a weak venom that serves to immobilize their small prey, but is harmless to humans. Ringneck snakes are nocturnal, secretive snakes which spend most of their time hiding under rocks or other ground debris. If threatened, the ringneck snake typically hides its head and twists its tail in a corkscrew type motion, exposing its brightly colored underside, and expels a foul smelling musk from its cloaca.
