Philodryas livida is a snake endemic from Brazil, with registers in the Brazilian states of Goiás, Mato Grosso do Sul e São Paulo. Because of the expansion of farming areas, the area occupied by Philodryas livida diminished 30,5% in the last ten years. Considering the ten years gap is longer than the period of three generations for this species, it is inferred that the reduction of their habitat is equivalent to the population reduction (greater than or equal to 30%), and the causes did not cease. For these reasons, Philodryas livida is categorized as Vulnerable.
