Many of Tennessee's wild animals have learned to adapt and even thrive in our homes. For example some wildlife have found that attics make great places to live. Other animals find refuge under homes or porches. Invariably, these animals cause damage. Rodents, like squirrels and rats, love to chew on electrical wires once in an attic, and this causes a serious fire hazard. Raccoons can cause serious contamination in an attic with their droppings and parasites. Same goes for bat or bird colonies.

Mt. Juliet Wildlife Removal Tip: The Black Racer Snake

The Black racer snake is one of the most common species of non-venomous snakes that belong to a group known as coluber constrictor. They are most frequently found in the southeastern portion of the United States, as warm weather areas are necessary for their survival.

This snake has a Priapus which describes the proximal spine that becomes enlarged into basil hooks, which is a key characteristic of this particular snake. They can grow anywhere between 20 and 56 inches, and way a little bit more than a pound on average. This makes them a very slender looking creature.

The color of the snake is a grayish black, with a gray or white belly. They also have a characteristic white chin to them is very distinguishing.

The snakes are very fast, and this is why they get their name racer. While not being a venomous form of snake, they will attack people. It is not that they are able to do much damage, but is simply a defense mechanism to get on the offensive to try to frighten people to get them to go away. It can be quite effective, as most people are not sure if the snake is poisonous or not and so they simply run away, a safe decision to make when you are not sure whether you are looking at a venomous snake or not.

This is not their only defense mechanism, however. They also release an incredibly foul-smelling odor when predators come around to deter them from chasing after the black racer snake. This is a very effective means of scaring off predators, and has the same effect that the anal spray of a skunk can have on predators. It will scare them away in the vast majority of cases.

This racer snake is a predator, relying on eating such things as rodents, smaller size snakes, moles, lizards, and frogs. They will also eat larger size insects provide them with enough nourishment, such as Beatles, grubs, crickets, and grasshoppers. Eggs are also common source of food on these animals' diet.

The problem for the snakes is that the white chin frequently causes people to think that they are looking at some form of cottonmouth. This is caused mass elimination of these snakes, as people feared that they were facing the venomous species of this reptile, when that was not the case at all.

The snakes are also frequently found in areas along the highway, which is also led to a multitude of deaths as they have been run over by cars or captured by predators. Hawks find this snake to be particularly tasty, and are the primary predator that the black racer snake has to face. However, they are not the only bird that will devour these reptiles, as both Eagles and owls find them to be a tasty meal as well.

The mother will lay eggs as part of the reproductive process. Usually 20 our released at a time, and when born the young are about 6 inches long and able to completely care for themselves.
