|Black Racers are slender black snakes of adult size from 30 to 60 inches
in length. They are called "racers" because they are active, fast moving
snakes. Usually, these snakes quickly slither to the safety of thick grass
or brush when encountered. If cornered or grasped, they will bite viciously
Black Racers are diurnal (daylight) hunters. They eat rodents, birds,
frogs, lizards and insects.
