Black racer

Coluber constrictor


Nonvenomous. A medium long slender smooth scaled black snake interestingly, they are not constrictors They are known for being fast and for having a bad attitude




I had seen five racers and failed to catch one when i encountered this individual. This 4 foot individual must have been in a feeding mode when I picked him up. He thumb swallowed me, bit himself twice, and them grabbed my hand and chewed on it.
