Florida Pine Snake

Report Pine Snake Sightings

FWC biologists need help gathering information on the species current distribution in Florida.

The Florida pine snake (Pituophis melanoleucus mugitus) still occurs over much of its historical range but has always been uncommon or absent from the southern peninsula because of unsuitable habitat. Primary threats are habitat loss, habitat (e.g., fire suppression and silviculture), and fragmentation plus road mortality and killing by humans and their pets.
