Louisiana Pine Snake
Logging, development and agricultural conversion combined with a naturally low reproductive rate have combined to make this one of the rarest snakes in the US.
At least 2/3 of its original habitat has been destroyed and the remaining snakes are found in only six isolated pockets of pine forest.
HABITATOpen pine forests with sandy soil
