Have you Seen Black Racer Snake Comes in your Backyard?

Saturday, August 1, 2020
A black racer snake in the backyard.

First, we saw skin of snake on our backyard sometimes ago. Its could be Black racer snake, because this snake is a common reptile in the southern USA.

Coluber constrictor is scientific name for black racer. It is said the snake is active during daylight, and not poisonous.

Few other characters of black racer are:
- fast moving snake (why called as racer)
- length could reach to 55 inches (140 cm)
- color blind
- yearly to shed its skin
- live in woody, garden or yard areas
- predators of snake are hawk and bigger birds.
- similar appearance to venomous snake called water moccasin.


Black racer in other position


We might wonder about what kind of food Black racer eat. Here some:
- mole
- bird
- lizard
- frogs
- rodents
- insect
- smaller snakes

We never saw snake’s eggs in our yards. Some sources said the snakes could have about 20 eggs yearly with 40% survival rate for young born.

In fact, black racer snakes have positive impact on yards, because they may eat or get rid of the animals which cause damaging to the plants in the garden or yards.

However, in case you do not like this snake to stay in your yard, the best way that you snatch this reptile by trap.

Have you seen any snakes in your gardens or backyards? If so, what do you do?

  2. There is no way about it - I HATE snakes!! I know some are good to have around but if they are in my area I don't want to see them! We have a lot of poisonous snakes here in PA but fortunately we haven't come across any recently. My daughter and little Granddaughter were having a picnic by a creek in their area and they saw a snake eating a frog and that was the end of the picnic!

  8. Aqui no jardim sempre tem alguma de
    passagem; Não matamos esperamos paramos
    o que estamos fazendo para deixar a cobra ir embora.
    Boa entrada de mês de agosto.

    Here in the garden there is always some
    passage; We don't kill we wait we stop
    what we're doing to let the snake go.
    Good August entry.

  9. I've never seen a snake
    but a few times I came across vipers - they are much more dangerous than snakes
    best regards

  10. I am not a fan of snakes. I know they are good for gardens, but I'd like to never come across one in mine.

  11. When I see a snake, I run away. Only vipers and snakes are found in our forests ... Thank you very much for your sharing )))

  17. Black racers are great snakes to have around. This summer we have seen a corn snake several times--they are beautiful but sadly are often mistaken for a copperhead (which are poisonous--and I have seen a few of them over the years).
