>>seems to vary based on where the snake is found, northern ringneck snake's favorite prey is going to be salamanders, they're go for a salamander 9 times out of 10 if they're set up and are comfortable.
>>when it comes to them eating other snakes I've had different experiences with them, I had a small male northern ringneck snake, probably 13" that loved eating NEWBORN shorthead garter snakes. But only newborns, and only the baby shortheads, I tried several times after to feed it young eastern garters or northern brown snakes of various sizes with no success.
>>at the same time I had that snake I had a 24" northern ringneck female that loved salamanders and salamander scented pinkies/fuzzies, but wouldnt go for any snakes, even newborns.
>>
>>you could most likely house a northern ringneck with any snake of the same size and they'd be alright, but if the ringneck gets hungry enough who knows what would happen.
>>all ringnecks are different it seems, northerns dont seem to be as much of a snake eater though compared to regals and even southern ringnecks.
