The leopard snake is one of the rarest snake species in Bulgaria. It is included in the Red Data Book of Bulgaria as threatened species under high anthropogenic pressure. Its distribution range in Bulgaria includes only three very distant regions in the southern part of the country. Precise literature data about the leopard snake in Bulgaria are scarce. The aim of this paper is to present distribution data as well as to review the conservation status of the leopard snake in Bulgaria.
