The San Francisco Garter Snake, listed under the Endangered Species Act in 1966, is actually the most endangered reptile in North America. Urbanization and pollution have both contributed to the snakes’ near extinction. The Eastern Indigo, a snake native to the Southeastern U.S., has been endangered since 1978. The King Cobra, the most venomous snake in the world, and the Dumeril’s Boa are also endangered.
The New Mexican Ridge-nosed Rattlesnake and the Eastern Timber Rattlesnake are considered a threatened species. Both these kinds of snakes are protected by law but hunters still kill hundreds each year.
