    I obtained this guy through a very unusual trade.....

    He is now 3 years old, and the most "hands off" snake in my collection, he has not been in direct contact with human hands since he was little, This snake goes absolutely crazy when touched, so I have to treat him like he's a hot, and lure him into a hide box with food, then close the box to maintain his cage.

    As a baby..

    All the better to see you with as he tries to eat your hand...

    Wow! Beautiful! :) So his temperament isn't all that friendly then? lol I've dealt with some wild black racers and none of them liked being messed with, either.

    Racers are notoriously unsocial!
    They are just too high strung.

    I am not one to maul my snakes anyways, so I am just fine with anti social animals.

    Some people want docile snakes as "pets" I prefer to observe through the glass and let them be themselves.
