: : Looks like a whipsnake,
: : are you in Arizona, or Ca?

:
: i identified it ,,its a coachwhip,,,

: can you give me some basic info i need to know

med/large colubrid, active during the day, likes large cages and warm temps (mid 80's to low 90's) with a "hot" spot.
They eat sm rodents, lizards, large insects, small birds, snakes, pretty much anything they can catch and overpower.
Neat snakes, dont do all that great in captivity, unless you get them when they are small.
They are also pretty nervous and very very fast.


Enjoy
