Is Northern Ringneck Snake deadly?
The Northern Ringneck snake is only deadly, normally, to the small animals that it eats. There are four US snakes that can be deadly: Rattlesnake, Copperhead, Water Moccasin, and the Coral Snake. If the Northern Ringneck is disturbed, it may coil up its tail and show the red underbelly. If that does not work, it will emit a very bad smell. If that does not work, either, it will bite savagely but with no poison. As with any animal bites, the Northern Ringneck bites can become infected, and if not treated, cause death in a very FEW cases.
