Ophisaurus attenuatus is found in the U.S., from central Illinois west into central Kansas

and south through eastern Texas, extending across the Mississippi into southern Florida

and up to east North Carolina and southeast Virginia. There are isolated occurences in

central Wisconsin. The two subspecies are separated by the

Mississippi, with O. a. attenuatus in the west and O. a. longicaudus in

the east (Conant and Collins, 1998).
