Ringneck snake in basement?

im up in PA and it's pretty cold out, i found a little baby ringneck snake in my basement. I wanna release it back outside but im worried he'll die. what are my options? will he live if i let him go?


I'd keep him around for a while it's a baby it won't last very long if you let it go.

Do some research on keeping a ringneck in captivity until such a time as you can release it. Also check your local regulations for keeping collected wildlife. If you can get it to a rehabilitator, that would be ideal.


Keep it around if you want it to live
