The South Florida Rainbow Snake, known from only three specimens and last collected in 1952, was declared extinct by the U. S. Fish and Wildlife Service in 2011. Unconfirmed sightings of the elusive nocturnal snake have led some scientists and advocates to argue that this designation was assigned too soon, and a $500 reward has been put up for documentation of its existence.
