Sub-adult male Northern Black Racer — Coluber constrictor constrictor flipped under a piece of tin this weekend. Despite recent rains, this was the only large snake species utilizing artificial cover during my herping trip. Look closely, and you can see the brown dorsal blotches, which are now heavily faded by the snake's adult black coat.

A neonate southern black racer from another round of fall flippin'! There might be a video about this guy eventually.

Drawing a snake in vector is a bit of a fan dance, hiding breaks in the continuous lines.

Juvenile male Northern Black Racer - Coluber constrictor constrictor (Linnaeus, 1766) flipped under a small board last weekend. This snake is a classic example of what biologists call an "ontogenetic shift" in color pattern. Juveniles, while brown with dark blotches and light bellies, will soon transform into jet black adults. Some big papers have come out recently (with one on the way) that have drastic phylogenetic changes for this genus and what was Masticophis. But these Maryland populations will likely remain the same for now.

Saw this little beauty today 🐍💗
First snake I've seen in like 3 years. And that's horrible. The crazy temperature changes from climate change has killed off a lot of our insects & reptiles around here.

Very nice looking blue racer (Coluber constrictor foxii) flipped under a board alongside another blue racer back in May. This photo shows the preferred habitat utilized by blue racers in northern Illinois which is sand prairie bordered by oak savanna. Hiking and flipping in the morning proves quite productive for racers on sand prairies in northern Illinois, going out early always helps as well because they're not quite as warmed up as they would be later in the day, making them easier to catch.

Making friends with Speed Racer ha!

Blue-eyed Dinosaur! This gorgeous Northern Black Racer (Coluber constrictor) has such vibrantly blue eyes because it is opaque or getting ready shed. Racers are fast moving snakes, reaching speeds of 8 to 10mph! This guy put up only a little chase before we grabbed him.  A defensive tactic that these snakes use is violently rattling thier tails among leaf litter to make a big scene and scare away predators. If that doesn't work a heavy dose of musk may do the trick... didn't work this time! We took a few shots and let this gal go on her way. W/@d.mahoy & @gatorboys_chris

Mom and I found a 🐍 today!! It was hiding on our front porch and was scared of me.

Have a look at my little brother @ricaskew93 amazing stories of animals and conservation from around the world ------------------
Cayman Racer Snake (Alsophis cantherigerus caymanus) spotted in the Grand Cayman Botanical Gardens.  One of only two endemic snakes on Grand Cayman. These guys are non-venomous and only grow up to 4-feet long, their main defensive is releasing a foul smelling chemical when threatened. They feed on frogs, lizards and juvenile iguanas ! #snake#racersnake#grandcayman#grandcaymanwildlife

I love the patterns on juvenile racers! This is a blue racer (coluber constrictor foxii) that I managed to cruise one day.

This guy took a swim with us tonight! I guess he needed to cool off! 😱🐍 #racersnake #swimmining #clearedthepool #releasedhimtothewilderness #afunnythinghappenedwhilewewereswimming
I may be at the airport now but earlier this guy distracted me from my packing. Mr Bitey here refused to leave the garage after being found hiding among my bags. But I eventually got him out safely (for the both of us). 🐍 #snake #snakesofflorida #livinginflorida #ruralflorida #floridalife #floridawildlife #homeinvader #nochillzone #scalebro
Found this little snake gopher hunting today it just wanted to bite so I couldn't get a good picture but it was the same length as my shotgun #racersnake #snake #shotgun #antiqueguns #remingtonmodel31 #pnw #pacificnorthwest #oregon #hunting #12gauge
Here's another toy snake I repainted to look more like a species found in Singapore. This was used as a prop for a short course I conducted in June, sharing about the snakes of Singapore with NParks staff and other landscape industry professionals.

When I saw Safari Ltd's Rough Green Snake - XL, I knew I had to get it to represent a Red-tailed Racer (Gonyosoma oxycephalum). Fairly straightforward, even if it isn't perfect; the shape of the head isn't an exact match, and I'd painted most of the tail green before I checked my photo references and realised that more of it should be red. That's why part of the tail is a darker shade of red, where I'd tried to paint over (but couldn't totally hide) the green. The actual Red-tailed Racer often has black edges to its scales, and the green isn't uniform - the sides are typically a lighter shade of green compared to the dorsal surface, subtleties in coloration that are difficult to replicate. Still, I think the final result isn't too bad.

The Red-tailed Racer is a large non-venomous snake that grows up to 2.5 metres in length. It's restricted to forest habitats, and is usually found in locations like Bukit Timah Nature Reserve, Central Catchment Nature Reserve, and the surrounding Nature Parks. As its coloration suggests, it spends much of its time in trees and shrubs, where it hunts birds and small mammals.

The photo of the live Red-tailed Racer is by Mishak Shunari.

I've been finding racer snakes (a local nonvenomous snake only found in cayman) in my yard EVERY single day!!! I love them! Snakes 🐍 are the coolest. The eat the invasive green iguanas. #snakes #reptiles #slither #populationcontrol #killtheiguanas #racersnake #donthatesnakes
A very large, pretty blue racer (Coluber constrictor foxii) found with @nathankutok and @evankirincich under a piece of tin a while back.

A nice black racer found in Florida the other day #blackracer#racersnake#herping#herplife#snakesofinstagram#herpers
If you ever come across a black racer, this is how you deal with them. Safely move them and let them go. Yes they eat lizards and frogs but also nice and rats. Also they are non poisonous #themoreyouknow #northcarolinawildlife #northcarolinaliving #blackracer #racersnake #beneficial #savealife
Striped Racer Snake! Found this bad boy in my garden. Scared me at first but later determined it was harmless. #garden #vegetablegarden #racersnake #snakes
This little Racer snake has made our garden it's preferred hunting ground lately, using the open irrigation trenches as it's secret sort of highway. Pretty awesome!

Northern Black Racer - Coluber constrictor constrictor (Linnaeus, 1758)
Racers made up a vast majority of the snakes I saw this week herping in Maryland and New Jersey. At one site, we discovered what appeared to be a rookery of some sorts with up to five large adults using a collapsed boat and several carpets for shelter, ecdysis and maybe even nesting. I was able to capture one of the snakes seen periscoping out from one of the carpets.

Melanistic eastern yellow-bellied racer. While usually olive on top and bright yellow on the belly, this specimen has extra melanin, giving it a black look, with some yellow still visible near the throat and chin.
