Black Racer…. very, very good to have around your yard. Why? Well, they eat other snakes, mice and rats!
Juveniles are often mistaken as Pygmy Rattlesnakes.
Breeding: March thru June | Eggs 6-20: May thru August
Like the baby alligators, snakes also have a egg tooth that helps them rip open the egg and falls off within a couple of days. Neonates or hatchlings are on their own once they emerge from the egg, feeding on insects and other small amphibians.
