Diagnosis:
HARMLESS. In Kansas the adult North American Racer is characterized by smooth scales, a divided anal scale, a uniform cream or yellow belly with no pattern, and a uniform blue-gray, greenish blue, or brown body. Young of this species have a pattern of large, light-edged blotches on the back alternating with smaller spots on the sides. This pattern is distinct on the front half of the body and fades toward the rear. Young specimens also have scattered dark speckles on the belly. As they grow older, young North American Racers lose all pattern and attain the uniform appearance of adults. Adult males have slightly longer tails than females, and females grow slightly larger than males. The tongue is typically entirely black to dark brown; occasionally reddish proximally.
Snake eggs can be especially difficult to distinguish from one species to another, however, the North American Racer and the Coachwhip are the only species in Kansas that has roughly textured eggs (like large-grit sandpaper). The eggs are white to cream and typically do not adhere to one another. They are approximately 25.4 mm (1 inch) long and 12.7 mmo(½ inch) in diameter.
Adults are normally 58.0-127.0 cm (23-50 inches) in total length. The largest specimen from Kansas is a female (KU 192239) from Jefferson County with a total length of 141.3 cm (55½ inches) collected by Rick Strawn on 31 May 1982. The maximum length throughout the range is 190.5 cm (75 inches) (Boundy, 1995; Powell et al., 2016). The maximum weight for Kansas specimen is 538 grams (1 pound, 3 ounces).

Distribution:
A true generalist, this species is found statewide. The North American Racer is a snake of open grassland, pasture, and prairie areas during the summer and generally is found on rocky wooded hillsides only in spring and fall.

Natural History:
Fitch (l956, 1963) studied this snake in northeastern Kansas, and much of the information for Kansas is based on his observations.
The North American Racer is a snake of open grassland, pasture, and prairie areas during the summer and generally is found on rocky wooded hillsides only in spring and fall. This snake is active normally from April to mid-November, at air temperatures ranging from 60° to 90°F, but Clarke (1958) found it active as early as 23 March in Osage County. Platt (1985) found this reptile common in the sand prairie habitat of western Harvey County. Rundquist (1998) reported on a letter from Claude Hibbard to Edward H. Taylor that recounted the discovery of a North American Racer active on 31 December 1950 at 70 deg F.
The North American Racer is diurnal, spending the day basking in the sun or gliding swiftly over the ground in search of food. It has an average home range of 25 acres but does not appear to be territorial. Estimates indicate as many as six North American Racers per acre in northeastern Kansas (Fitch, 1982).
During winter, this species crawls deep into rock crevices on wooded hillsides, where it remains inactive until spring. Jeffrey Burkhart (pers. comm., 1980; Collins, 1993) discovered two North American Racers in a winter retreat on 20 November in Ford County. The retreat was approximately 75 cm (29½ inches) below ground and also contained two Prairie Kingsnakes and eight Plains Garter Snakes. James L. Knight and George Toland (pers. comm., 1980) found a winter retreat in a stacked-rock well in Saline County during December which contained 122 North American Racers (nearly all adults), two Gopher Snakes, and two Common Kingsnakes. Heinrich and Kaufman (1985) found twelve of these snakes killed by a controlled prairie fire on 29 April on the Konza Prairie near Manhattan; apparently, the snakes had overwintered in a nearby rocky area and were unable to escape to safety.
Breeding in this species occurs in May. During courtship, the male positions himself alongside the female and ripples his body spasmodically as he positions his cloaca beneath her tail. Copulation then occurs and lasts several minutes. While copulating, the female may move forward slowly, dragging the attached male with her.
Cope (1900) reports an account, given by Dr. Henry Brons, of the courtship of this species on the Kansas plains: "The manner of union of the sexes at this season is rather instructive. The female among the racers (Bascanium) is larger and darker than the males, and not so graceful in form or movements. She, at times, seems to toy with the male, indisposed to yield to his importunities, though pressed with ardor. To avoid his suit, at times, she will dart through grass, among stones, or enter a crevice. Should he be able to reach his mate while within a hole, he is not slow in bringing her to the surface, again to be repulsed. Upon an unbroken ground, the sexual communion is less prolonged. Here she is unable to free herself from his quick and effectively directed moves. In case she attempts to quit him, a coil is thrown about her body, and his head laid flat upon her neck and replaced as promptly as dislodged, evidently in the endeavor to propitiate her."
Females lay their eggs from mid-June to early August, usually in tunnels or burrows of small mammals, such as moles. More than one female may use the same nest site at the same time. Number of eggs per clutch ranges from five to 31 (Fitch, 1985), with an average of eleven or twelve. Incubation takes from two to three months. Guillette and Sullivan (1983) reported a case of successful incubation of eggs removed from a pregnant road-killed North American Racer in Harvey County.
The North American Racer relies primarily on sight to capture food. It pursues and eats any small animal that moves. According to Fitch (1963, 1982), this snake eats insects, frogs, lizards, other snakes, birds, bird eggs, and small mammals. Henderson (1974), working in Douglas County, found the diet of this snake to consist of insects, smaller snakes, and small mammals.
Primary predators of this species are hawks and small mammals (Collins, 1993).

Occurrence Activity:
Number of Unique Obervations (=days): 246; Range: 03 Jan to 19 Dec
Remarks:
First reported in Kansas by Hallowell (1857) among the specimens collected William A. Hammond, army surgeous stationed at Fort Riley. Bocourt (1879) mentions (page 698; translated from French) "The Museum [National Museum of Natural History (Paris)] has several copies of the Bascanion flaviventris; only one of them was collected in Mexico; the others are from the United States: one of them, from Kansas, was donated by the Smithsonian Institution." The earliest existing specimens (MCZ 5418) was collected by Francis W. Cragin "near Manhattan"(Riley County). According to the MCZ catalog, one of the specimens associated with this number was sent "to Butantan" (Instituto Butantan in Sao Paulo, Brazil) on 31 May 1929. The Instituto Butantan burned on 15 May 2010 and all (85,000) of its preserved snake holdings were destroyed.
Burt (1935) reported on a female North American Racer that was found dead in the road with eggs exposed from the body cavity in Pawnee County, Kansas, on 26 May 1934. Burt (op. cit.) also reported finding young individuals with the initial color pattern in a snake den in Cowley County, Kansas, on 29 March 1934, in association with Pantherophis emoryi and Diadophis punctatus. Adults were associated with large Pituophis catenifer in another den on a prairie hillside.
Despite its scientific name, it is not a constrictor.

Report on a lot of specimens received at the Museum of the Academy of Natural Sciences from Dr. Hammond of Ft. Riley Kansas. Of special note are three specimens of Phyrnosoma douglassii (=Phyrnosoma hernandesi) from Ft Riley (it does not naturally occur there and likely never did). Several of the specimens are marked Bridger's Pass (in Wyoming) (Western Milksnake, Plains Hog-nosed Snake, Slender Glass Lizard, and Western Tiger Salamander; all but the Slender Glass Lizard occur near there). A specimen of the Red-spotted Toad is reported as well, however, it does not occur near Ft. Riley, and as given "One Bufo punctatus, (young of Americanus)." there is some question as to its actual identity.

Describes all snake species reported from Kansas, considering doubtful those species that the author has not encountered himself. This list contains twenty-nine valid species. Collections examined included State University (KU), State House, Washburn College (WU), Ottawa University, State Normal School (ESU), State Agricultural College (KSU), and several high schools in Kansas. Examined the material available to Mozley (1878) and determined that of the thirty-three species listed, only twenty-three species were valid currently. And that Cragin's (1880) list of thirty-two species included eight specimens on the authority of Mozley that this author could not verify in any collection.

Accounts on forty species known from the vicinity of Manhattan, Riley County, Kansas. There have been several scientific names changes since publication, which is understandable... however, some usages cannot be explained by subsequent taxonomic reappraisals(e.g.  Gastrophryne carolinensis for Gastrophryne olivacea). The writer lists Eumeces (=Plestiodon) obsoletus and E. guttulatus yet correctly reasoning that the latter is the young of the former. Within the account of Tantilla gracilis (a common form) the writer mentions that T. nigriceps was reported from Riley County by Branson (1904) but that the specimens at Kansas State were absent at the time of publication. The Prairie Rattlesnake (Crotalus viridis) was first reported from Riley County by Branson (1904) and is reported by the writer based on a specimen in the museum at Kansas State University by Professor E. A. Popenoe. The Prairie Rattlesnake is not currently native to Riley County, and closest reliable localities are 150 to the west.

Hypsiglena jani was not known from Kansas until Claude W.

Brumwell plotted this locality, which leads me to believe that the 1936 would have been the earliest date this manuscript could have been written.

Report on certain Kansas specimens housed in the collection at what is now Pittsburg State University. Included are several species of dubious status today, including Cryptobranchus alleganiensis from the Neosho and Spring rivers (the only specimens from those significant drainages ever documented), Ambystoma maculatum from just north of Pittsburg, Crawford County, Heterodon nasicus from Crawford County, Opheodrys vernalis from Crawford County, Sonora episcopa from Crawford County, Agkistrodon piscivorus from Cherokee County, Crotalus atrox from Crawford County, and Crotalus viridis from Crawford County. They report several significant range extensions including Kinosternon flavescens from Turkey Creek in southeast Cherokee County, Graptemys geographica from just north of Pittsburg, Crotaphytus collaris from near Columbus, Cherokee County, Sceloporus consobrinus from just north of Pittsburg, Phrynosoma cornutum from Cherokee and Crawford counties, Heterodon platirhinos from Cherokee and Crawford counties, Haldea striatula from Crawford County, Sistrurus tergeminus from Crawford County, and a 402 lb Macrochelys temminckii in Cherokee County from just east of Chetopa (Labette County). They allude to the potential for Anaxyrus fowleri to occur in southeast Kansas and for native populations of Crotalus atrox in south central Kansas (in part from the disclosure that John R.

A summary of known information on the amphibian, reptile, and fish faunas of the Arkansas River above Great Bend. The report details associated field activities for procuring fish, however no new surveys for amphibians and reptiles were undertaken. Information on herps from Finney County was provided by Michael Rush (FHSU) and thus made available before the publication of his thesis (Rush, 1981). The western Arkansas River drainage had experienced little attention by herpetologists before this study, and the species accounts reflect that paucity of data. Additionally, the report omits several older records (e.g. for Anaxyrus debilisThamnophis cyrtopsis, and Lampropeltis calligaster) from the westernmost reaches of the Arkansas River drainage in Kansas.
