They have smooth scale, which are divided into 17 rows. The snakes are usually born from April to late May. The females’ lay leathery sort of eggs, which hatch in 6-9 weeks, and take about 1-3 years to mature. They mostly dwell in fields, brushy areas, grasslands, prairie land, mountains and pine flat woods. They are found in British Columbia and Ontario in Canada, and every state of America except Alaska.
Racer snakes have a distinguished head and large eyes with round pupils. They usually prey on small mammals, lizards, frogs and insects. They hibernate during the months of winter.
When they are provoked, they will make a buzzing sound and will vibrate their tail in dead vegetation. If any attempt is made to grab them, they will bite incessantly, and thrust themselves out in a violent manner.
