:::I'm not quite sure, but if my memory serves me correct ringnecks generally like slugs and other soft bodied insects.

:
:Yep, ringnecks like worms and slugs and snails and grubs. They are a small snake and probably won't grow more than another couple of inches. They can be hard to maintain in captivity. I've kept them for a season or two and then let them go again to breed and reproduce. Soil is a good substrate for them. You might want to put in a flat piece of wood or bark for it to hide under and keep water available.
:hope this helps

Thanks,
I plan to release her close to where I found her is she does not eat. I bought some guppies today for her she acts like she likes them she sticks her head in the water dish. I tried feeding her a small worm and she would not have that and also a cricket too she did not eat that either. This is my first ring neck snake. Gatrters are much easier too keep. I will agree that she is kind of finicky about what she eats. She just has shed she was shedding when I found her yesterday could that play a role in it? I like california kingsnakes way better than ring neck snakes.


laterz,
john
