Definitely the eastern indigo snake. It averages 6 to 8.5 feet long, but is slower than other snakes. You can find it in the southeastern United States, including Florida, Alabama and Georgia. It is sometimes mistaken for a black racer, which is a bit shorter and much faster. The eastern indigo snake is federally classified as a threatened species.
The Eastern Indigo Snake (from genus Drymarchon) is known to be the longest snake in North America. According to Gopher Tortoise Council, the snake reaches a maximum size of approximately 8.5 ft.
