I'm trying to figure out how to obtain racers and/or coachwhips.
I've heard these are a good to test to see if you can handle venomous species. Currently I just have a variety of boids including a large Burm. I may be getting a Retic this year and would think that some experience with a small active snake might help round out my experience before taking on a large active snake.
I really like the Blue Racers and understand their range includes part of Ohio but I've never had much luck field collecting.
