: There is anyone keeping this species?
The Horseshoe Racer (Coluber h. hippocrepis) is a very nice animal that used to be frequently imported from N. Africa. They are not as skittish as many of the racers and their colors are nice enough that they were fairly popular. They are great rodent eaters and are fairly hardy. Unfortunately I haven't seen any in several years though they frequently pop up on lists from Egypt along with their subspecies , the Flower Racer (C. h. florulentus).
Hopefully they will become available again as they are really nice snakes. Have a Great Weekend!!!
