Louisiana pinesnake

This large and beautifully patterned reptile is recognized as one of the rarest snakes in North America. It was historically found in central and western Louisiana and eastern Texas in the westernmost portion of the open canopy, longleaf pine ecosystem on sandy-well drained soils.
