: I by no means ment to say i "just wanted to see him" he can stay in his hide if he wants as long as he is going to be healthy, my concern was that racers are highly active and he never moves and the chance of him getting dehydrated.

Count your blessings. The last southern black racer I had was straight from hell. Acted like he was jet propelled, never stopped moving, ate like a starving wolf and was as close to completely unhandle-able as I've ever seen for a half-grown snake.I finally gave him to a breeder in PA. Tried to put him in a shipping bag and he bit me 5 or 6 times & shot back out of the bag like he was under 100psi pressure. Twice! Good luck with your shy guy- J Deryke
