Drymarchon couperi (non-venomous) [Federally protected]
For being one of the United States’ largest snakes, indigo snakes are not frequently seen. This is because they spend much of their underground in pocket gopher and gopher tortoise burrows hunting anything that it can fit in its mouth. Also, their numbers have been greatly reduced over the past several decades and is a federally protected species. If you happen to be lucky enough to see one of these in the wild, do not bother it and observe it from distance.
