Friendly little buggers aren't they? Glad this was just a hatchling. Turd bit me like 30 times during the 20 mins I held him. Guess he was just letting his preferences be known. If it were an adult, I'd have been a bloody mess.

That's a good sized one, too. She's been out of the egg for a while and had a few good feeds. Great catch. I've never even seen one when I've been out looking. I've seen a few when I wasn't looking for snakes, though.

Picture #2 is the reason I didn't go near a snake for like 12 years.  When I was 8 I picked up a black racer in the woods near my house and it lit me up like 6 times before it even dawned on me to drop it.  After that I avoided snakes for awhile.

How big do they grow? Where do they live? Did you see them hatching?

They can get a little over 5 ft. 3ft to 4ft most common. They turn jet black eventually.

i saw a HUGE one of those on the side of the rode last summer, had to have been every bit of 5 ft. long. i pulled over and got out to get a better look and unfortunately it was pretty clear that someone had run it over and it was dying. first time i ever saw a snake that i thought looked sad :{

I had one racer that used to live in the space under my bar-b-que in my yard. I would get home from work and it would be sunning itself on my concrete patio area. It was about 5.5 feet long. I know enough to know it wasn;t poisonous, and I tried to pick it up with my hookstick. It did not respond favorably. -mendelson

In fact I was born in a place called Tooraweenah, which means place of many snakes, and it is.
