The wild turkey is North Carolina's most highly prized game bird. However, its future is uncertain. Either it will continue to flourish in many parts of the state, or it will be reduced to a few state-managed or private areas for hunting. Gooden discusses major problems affecting the wild turkey's future, including good turkey management, providing suitable habitats, and reducing disturbances in habitat areas.
One of North Carolina's largest snakes is the pine snake, which can attain a maximum length of over six feet. It is easily recognized by its whitish coloration and brown or rust-colored blotches down its back and by its loud hissing when disturbed. Because it feeds mostly upon rats, mice, and other small mammals, it is considered a beneficial species.
