Common Name: Northern Black Racer
Scientific Name: Coluber c. constrictor
Characteristics: Another relatively docile species this snake is slender and gloosy black with smooth dorsal scales.
Habitat: Moist woodlands and fields.
Size: Grows to around 6 feet in length.
Indentifying Marks: Snake is glossy black with a white chin and throat.
Diet: Birds, small mammals, amphibians, and reptiles.
Breeding: Approximately 25 off-white eggs are deposited in loose soil or sawdust piles.
Myths and Lore:
Venom Effects: Non-Venomous
Pet Potential: I would rate this snake to have decent pet potential bearing in mind it grows to 6 feet and would require a larger habitat than most.
