Though I've never heard of a speckled racer I think a lot of people will tell you that racers in general are very hard to keep whether it be their speed or unwillingness to eat in captivity or something like that O_O

Re: drymobius margaritiferus (speckled racer)

Drymobius margaritiferus, commonly known as the Speckled Racer, is a species of non-venomous colubrid snake native the Americas, ranging from the Lower Rio Grande Valley of Texas in the United States[1] south to Colombia. As it is the northernmost ranging species of Drymobius, it is sometimesSpeckled Racers are fast moving, nervous snakes which do not often hesitate to bite if handled. They are typically found in densely vegetated habitats near permanent water sources. They will consume a wide variety of prey, but primarily feed on frogs and toads. They are oviparous, laying up to 8 eggs at any time in the spring or summer months. The eggs incubate for approximately two months before hatching. Hatchlings are approximately 6 in (15 cm) in length and reach maturity in 2-3 years referred to as the Northern Speckled RacerThe Speckled Racer is typically black in color with distinctive yellow and blue spotting, which gives the snake an overall greenish hue. The underside is typically yellow to green. They average 30–40 in (76–100 cm) in length

Re: drymobius margaritiferus (speckled racer)

their care would appear to be similar to that of a garter, I have a chance of importing some, and was just wondering if any one had any first hand experience with them.

I will prob import some so I will keep you guys updated
