WEC 251: The Florida Pinesnake: Pituophis melanoleucus mugitus

Figure 9. Upland turkey oak (Quercus laevis) barren sandhill habitat is also excellent habitat for Florida pinesnakes. When prescribed fire is used to manage oak-dominated sandhills they eventually revert back to pine-dominated systems and remain very suitable for Florida pinesnakes.
