Southern Black Racer?

Coluber constrictor

Notes:

There's more than one subspecies. In picture #3, is it smelling for prey?

These guys seem to be incredibly common in Florida, so I'm sure you will see more of them!

Your Highness, :)
Yeah, I kind of thought that it was just moving around. Nice.
Thank you.

I like to think there is more to me than just snakes! Haha. Yes, it's the southern black racer. In the last photo he is smelling, but not necessarily for prey. They constantly tongue flick to just figure out what is going on around them!

Well, we can't help it if snakes like her like we all do, right James? :)
