Default 10/2 Snake ID

What type of racer? Obvious metallic-like copper patches that faded with the black body. No distinct lines or pattern.

Found in Kingwood during flood repair estimates. Snake was not hanging out in the garage. It retreated to the open garage when I came across it in the thick landscape beds.

Looks like a southern black racer if he is all black. A coach whip would lighten up at the tail.

Think it was on the green screen that someone said...

There are only two kinds of snakes...rattlesnakes are easy to identify...all other snakes are cobras. Kill them all.
