: : Do racers ever make good captives? I have never seen one what was. For that matter, I never saw one that you could put your hands on and not draw back a bloody mess. :) I think they can be really pretty though.
: Agreed. They do not make good corn-snake-type pets. My small adult Speckled Racer seems non-typical in that I CAN grab him bare-handed and instead of biting, he thrashes violently until I get him close to the head with a second hand. Then its as if he says, "OK, game's over" and lays calmly in my hand until his cage cleaning is through.
My speckled (Jeweled?) is exactly the same way. I've had him for a couple months and he has yet to even attempt to bite me.
