Information about the Eastern Indigo Snake:
The Eastern Indigo Snake - also called the blue indigo snake, black snake, blue gopher snake, and blue bull snake - is native to the flatwoods, hammocks, dry glades, stream bottoms, cane fields, and riparian thickets of southern South Carolina into Florida and west to Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama. It is notable as it is the longest native snake in North America, generally reaching lengths of over six feet long, with the all-time longest snake on record being nine feet two inches. Females are usually a little smaller than the males. The snake is non-venomous, and will generally avoid contact with humans. If provoked it will bite however. The Eastern Indigo Snake is carnivorous, feeding on frogs, turtles, lizards, toads, small mammals and birds. Due to habitat loss the snake is now federally protected in Georgia and Florida, and it may be extirpated in Alabama.
