Yeah, they're interesting snakes. Where I live the easterns and westerns integrate (50 miles due south of Houston). I've found some that looked like western's and some like easterns, although both subspecies are quite variable. One I found had 8" bands for the length of it's body, it's head and neck was a beautiful rust color, then a beige tan band, then a less brilliant rust and so on for it's entire length, the bands were very well defined. I've had similar experiences with coachwhip temperment, most are pretty antsy at first, then calm down quite a bit. I can't say the same about racers, most I've caught will constantly bite and thrash around. It's unfortunate because the yellowbellied racers in my area are nicely colored, most have a very green back, with brilliant yellow neck.
