Just caught a Black Racer also know as a black coachwhip. Very nasty attitude of a snake and they are super fast thus the name racer. It's also called a coachwhip because it gives some fast whips if you try to grab it.

Masticophis flagellum - Red Racer/Red Coachwhip- Hill’s Acres, Wonder Valley.  The juvenile coloration of this little guy is much more of a brown than the bright pinkish red of the adults we see out here. Probably a camouflage thing, decreasing the likelihood of being spotted by predators  that eat small snakes. Took him a minute to realize that I wasn’t trying to eat him myself- he bit the crap out of the leather glove I was wearing while catching him πŸ˜†  #wondervalleycalifornia #masticophisflagellum #redracersnake #redcoachwhip #coachwhipsnake  #californiaherps #herps #snakesofinstagram #desertcreatures

#canyouseethelizard? If you #look very #closely you can a #commonspottedwhiptail that I #photographed at the #fortworthbotanicgarden. I didn't just see one #yesterday but I got to see #two #individuals. They are one of my #favorite #lizards and a #funfact to #know is that they are a #prime #foodsource for the #coachwhipsnake. #inaturalist #nature #speedysuckers #wildlife #herps #reptiles #observation #parklife

#snake #onthetrail mostly hidden by the grass. These guys can really move, but not doing any moving now. #coachwhip #coachwhipsnake
🐍 I have been looking for a snake on the trail for three years and finally spotted one... barely! If you look closely in the first photo you can see the tail, which I somehow spotted from several feet away. Very well camouflaged, was at least four feet.

"An Animal's eyes have the power to speak a great language" -Martin Buber🐍🐍🐍 Masticophis flagellum (Coahwhip) we found in South Texas. These are a fantastic, and usually fiesty, species of snake common to the Unites States and Mexico. This guy was super chill and surprisingly easy to work with (for a coachwhip). Great find!!!

Some people say im a snake charmer πŸ˜…πŸ˜‚πŸπŸ This photo of me and a friendly coachwhip (Masticophis flagellum) was shot by @bat_gal_bribri on our South Texas shot. I have more shots of this guy but their stuck on my computer for the time being. A colubrid, this snake periscopes its head above the grass searching for both predator and prey. Awesome snake!

We did a Ranger led hike this past Sunday at the Canyonlands Unit of The Big Thicket National Preserve. About 80% of the 7+ mile hike was bushwacking & navigating through the woods. We truly enjoyed our time out there, and learned many things about our 'backyard'. #coachwhipsnake #coachwhip #snake #reptile #bigthicket #bigthicketnationalpreserve #easttexas #findyourpark #hikingadventures #hiking #thegreatoutdoors #gooutside #getoutside #rei1440project #theoutbound #nature #naturelover #igtexas #visittexas #hikers #exploring #lifeisbetteroutdoors #optoutside #neverstopexploring #wildernessculture #explore

Just another day in the backyard.  This is a  Western Coachwhip snake (Masticophis flagellum testaceus) we caught trying to get into the hen house.. You should see these things move! They are almost impossible to catch with your bare hands.

I got to bring some education animals to Brown’s Ranch last week for their Sonoran Sundays Program. I don’t usually get pro pics of myself doing these things. Thanks, Sandra @prosperlivlong! My fave pic is the one of the kids excited and engaged with the reptiles. #snakes #coachwhipsnake #kingsnake #sonorandesert #startemyoung

Eastern Coachwhip(Masticophis flagellum) 
Over the years I have had some very interesting experiences catching animals, but this animal takes the cake. @trinaplm and @kyleskritters can attest that it made a complete fool out of me multiple times in a matter of seconds, but the adrenaline rush it gave me is the kind of thing I live for. #coachwhipsnake #fieldherping #herpers_digest #herpers_digest #wildlife_perfection #vision_natura #snakesofinstagram #herpetology #neverstopexploring #createexplore #floridawildlife #floridaherps

Happy World Snake Day! 🐍 🐍 🐍  This little guy can travel up to 15mph, but don't worry, he won't chase ya. Here are some myths about the beautiful Coachwhip Snake--
The primary myth concerning coachwhips, that they chase people, likely arises from the snake and the person both being frightened, and both just happening to be going the same way to escape. Coachwhips are fast snakes, often moving faster than a human, and thus give an impression of aggression should they move toward the person.

The legend of the hoop snake may refer to the coachwhip snakes.

Another myth of the rural southeastern United States is of a snake that, when disturbed, would chase a person down, wrap him up in its coils, whip him to death with its tail, and then make sure he is dead by sticking its tail up the victim's nose to see if he is still breathing. In actuality, coachwhips are neither constrictors (snakes that dispatch their prey by suffocating with their coils) nor strong enough to overpower a person. Also, they do not whip with their tails, even though their tails are long and look very much like a whips.

Their bites can be painful, but generally are harmless unless they become infected.

In parts of Mexico, where ranching is a way of life, these snakes are believed to wrap around the legs of cows and feed on their milk as if suckling leaving the nipple dry. They will also hook on any other mammal that produces milk, leaving the young baby dehydrated.

Ranchers also tell stories of "chirrioneras", which hypnotize women then latch onto their breasts to feed. If the woman has a crying hungry baby the snake would stick their tail in the babies mouth to keep the baby quiet while feeding, then leave, undetected. This leaves the baby malnourished and getting weaker while the mother cannot feed her baby because her breasts have been sucked dry. The story goes that the only way to know if the snake has been there is if the baby has sores around the mouth.

Here's some more shots from the battle today. I have a pretty long video I will cut down and post to Cafes and Campfires Facebook page later. #coachwhip #coachwhipsnake #texassnakes #texasreptiles #snakefight #reptilesofinstagram
I just spent the last 40 minutes taking video and pics of these two mating, well I think they were trying to, maybe fighting. They were both bleeding and there was a lot of biting and hissing going on. This is the first shot of about 200 I'll sort through later. @tx_snakewrangler help me out here, is this a mating dance? They never locked up in the 40 minutes I watched and were still at it when I left. #coachwhip #coachwhipsnake #texassnake #texaswildlife #texasreptiles #retilesofinstagram

Common-spotted Whiptail at #goliadstatepark I love these little guys. They are very hard to photograph at times and are #fast and #quick #runners they are quite fascinating. There was a #coachwhipsnake nearby and they are hunters of these little lizards. These lizards are fast but the Coachwhip is fast to and able to catch these guys. They are one of my favorite lizards and one of the ones that can be found in large gatherings. #reptiles are so cool. #texas is full of wonder reptiles and amphibians. Some of the things you would be surprised we get. I just love looking for them even though I am not a true #herper I do like to look for them. I love reptiles and yes I do fancy myself a generalist so anything goes with me. I love all animals no matter what kind they are.
