Bahamian Racer Spotted in Red Mangroves

Bahamian Racers are found throughout the Bahamas, however, the recent invasion of Corn snakes in The Bahamas could negatively impact this native snake species in terms of competition for resources (e.g, food).  Bahamian Racers hunt for frogs and lizards as do young Corn snakes, a potential pathway of competition between these species. The invasion of Corn snakes is still ongoing in the Caribbean so be sure to share sightings of this invasive species.

    Hi Sandra,

    The the snake was found at Camp Abaco (I do not have exact coordinates of the spot snake was found right now, but I can get them next time I sample) on July 29, 2014. The photo was taken by Allison Todd, an undergraduate from North Carolina State University during routine sampling with me.

    Thanks for the comment,
    Ryann
