>>Mercy Gus...you're killing me!!! Are those buggers that common in south Texas? How about northern Mexico...are they common their too?

These are very common animals across a large part of their range in Texas.. In some places they may be the most frequently observed serpents. In the places where these images were taken I have seen perhaps 50 individuals in the last two years. The area is less than 500 acres.

The problem is that their habitat is under a concentrated attack.. an attack on nature itself, actually. It's appalling! The old Texas, where animals like this were tolerated and integrated in to farming and development is gone! So while it's prohibited to take an Indigo snake you can tear up and destroy them by the thousands and prevent any new populations.. that's all legal!

When the last Indigo snake is killed, in Texas or Florida, it will be entirely according to law and regulation.. That's because wildlife laws are meant to empower the government agencies and drive and allow development.. NOT to preserve animals like this.

That's my informed opinion.
