Thank you very much for all of your help. It means a lot. I'll have to go check it out!
: : 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

: 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
