Coluber constrictor priapus
Not even close. Racers are colubrids, and other than some really sharp, and fairly large teeth, harmless, unless you're a mouse, snake or rat.Cobras are elapids. VERY DANGEROUS!The only thing cobras, and racers have in common, is they both hunt by sight, and have the same temperament.
I agree with alicelongmartin! Nice photo. It looks like they could be related to cobras the way it looks coming from its jaw around towards its back. Actually cobras and racers are in the same Suborder but I'm not sure how closely related that really make them.
