Southern Black Racer Eggs

Coluber constrictor ssp. priapus


I saw 3 or 4 of these on the ground, all already hatched. You can see the neat little slit in the egg where the snake came out of this one. Similar in appearance to Eastern Indigo Snake eggs.


In a transitional area between salt marsh and hardwood forest with lots of old oak, colicwood, wild coffee, and Sabal Palmetto. Chassahowitzka Salt Marsh Trails in the Crystal River National Wildlife Refuge
