  1. Actually, black racers aren't poisonous at all. I used to have a wild one in my backyard. He would come right up and sit next to me while I gardened. It knew I would dig up bugs for his lunch. They're really afraid of people, so sometimes they try to scare you away from their home by coming up to you.

  2. The black racer, Coluber constrictor, is a non-poisonous, non-agressive, bug-eater. Are you maybe thinking of the black mamba? wrong continent.

    I'm not saying that if you try to pick a black racer up (unlikely to get that close) you won't get bit about six times before you can scream, but that's a different story.

  3. Ummmmmm.... I don't think that is right.... aren't Black Mamba's in Africa..... not the US.... Black Racers are not poisonous.....Coluber constrictor priapus, commonly known as the southern black racer, is one of the more common subspecies of nonvenomous Coluber constrictor snakes in the Southeastern United States. The name priapus refers to the proximal spines of the hemipenes being much enlarged into basal hooks, which is characteristic of this subspecies.[1] These snakes are quite active during the day, which increases the chance of sightings. They will eat almost any animal they can overpower, including, rodents, frogs, toads, and lizards. They have been known to charge at people in an attempt to frighten them[citation needed], but will usually retreat if challenged. They are not venomous. Members of this species generally do not tolerate handling – even after months in captivity – and will typically strike and flail wildly every time they are handled. These snakes are usually thin with a jet black dorsal side with a grey belly and white chin. They are quite fast, giving rise to the name "racer".

  4. Your outright lies about the "fierce nature" and "deadly poison" could be responsible for the death of black racer snakes by ignorant people who look up your completely false information. Here is some factual information about this snake:

  5. Black racers are nonvenomous and won't bother you unless you try to pick them up or attack them. They can respond aggressively and may bite multiple times if grabbed or swatted at. Their bite is rarely serious, provided that wounds are properly cleaned. They are beneficial animals and pose little to no threat to humans and should be left alone. They are faster than you might think, so don't assume you can just grab them behind the head, unless you enjoy being bit. Unless you know how to properly identify snakes and distinguish venomous species from nonvenomous species its best to leave all snakes alone. For North Americans who want learn to learn more about the snakes in their area, I recommend buying the Audubon Society Field Guide to North American Reptiles & Amphibians. It would seem that the internet is not always the most reliable source for accurate information.
