Well...i'm in south florida...by the everglades...[homestead sorta] and up untill my recent trip to Venice Florida i had never seen a caochwhip. I even posted on the "what kind of snake is this" forum about the one i saw a few days ago. Ive been in numerous walks through the heart of the glade and never seen one while i have seen many racers and Indigos. SOO...i'd say that yes they are more rare. They are very shy snakes tho and the one i saw was moving way faster than i would ever be able to run. So it might be that they are just very good at blending in and getting outta the way very quickly.
After seeing my first one i'm going on a herp-finding trip to the glades soon to see if i can find one down here. I read somplace that they prefer sandy dry land. So maybe they are more common in central Fl. I really dont know but being from Fl thought i'd put my 2-cents in. Okee byes
