A Snake Preview in New Port Richey FL -The Black Racer Visit

Who is this guy and what is he doing in my yard - he’s here for A Snake Preview. Craig says he’s a Black Racer and he’s non-venomous. Black Racers grow between 30 to 60 inches- this one was about 48” but I didn’t actually measure him. ☺


Black Racer

Baby Black Racers are marked with black, brown and red and lose their coloration as they grow. In adults, the black color is satiny and shiney. Called Racers because they move quickly when threatened, they are fun to watch racing away.


Black Racer

Black Racers are daylight hunters, and they look for frogs, toads, rodents, birds, and lizards. They are a subspecies of the Coluber constrictor. The Black Racer is also known as the Blue Racer in other parts of the country. Cute little guy.

I love wildlife of all kinds; everything has a reason to be. Namaste.

Yikes, that thing is long.  I'm rather happy to report that the closest animal to that black racer we have out here are lizards.  Something about their smallness and little legs make them much cuter.  I've seen 2-3 snakes in CA in 63 years, but one was a rattler with rabbit feet sticking out of his unhinged mouth.

Toni - The second photo is pretty cool though I don't think I'd want to be that close to it.

We've got a couple of these guys that hang out by our office.  Occasionally they make their way into the office.  Followed by loud screaming from every one scared of snakes.

Toni, as a kid I used to catch snakes and keep as pets until some higher authority in the house decided it was time to let them go...I really haven't seen that many around here...corn snakes, king snakes and a black snake or two...although we do have cotton mouths.
