: I have a huge interest in black racers. I breed snakes, and I would like to start breeding black racers also. Are there any reputable breeders that sell theses snakes at reasonable prices? Also, and general info on feeding would be appreciated. Thanks

Mack,
Black racers are extremely common in some areas of the eastern U.S. Since I don't know where you live, let me say that they are readily available through some of the larger reptile dealers like Glades Herp, for example. I would start with a juvenile if at all possible, because adults will do OK if you cater to their nervous dispositions, but handling of most adults is a no-no, especially if you want them to do well.( And, if you do not want to be biten constantly)So, if you can find hatchlings, or a little larger, that would be the place to start. Incidentally, there are places in Maryland where I have found over 70 racers in the course of a days field herping! Good luck! Mike Collalto
