DescriptionThe Louisiana Pinesnake (Pituophis ruthveni) is a large, heavy-bodied snake with adults reaching a size of 121.9–152.4 cm in length (Boundy and Carr 2017; Werler and Dixon 2000). Male snakes reach slightly larger sizes than females (Himes et al. 2002). Neonates of Pituophis ruthveni are, on average, the largest neonates of any North American snake, reaching 55 cm or larger (Reichling 1988, 1990).
