Today’s Snake of the Day is the striking Speckled Racer. This lovely snake is a rare find in the United States, in fact, Texas is the only state that is lucky enough to be home to Speckled Racers.
Notice the changing colors on the freckles that decorate this snake’s back — they range from turquoise blue to yellow-green. Contrary to popular belief, not all brightly colored animals are harmful. This snake is non-venomous; though nervous and quick to bite, it can do no real harm to humans.
