Management Plan for the Western Yellow-bellied Racer (Coluber constrictor mormon) in Canada

The Racer is a relatively thin snake that is typically less than 1 m in length. Adults are uniform grey or olive and have a yellow belly; young have a series of brown, saddle-like cross bands across the back that become fainter as the snakes mature. Racers are harmless to humans and feed mainly on insects. Racers occur in the south and central interior of British Columbia, a range that includes at least 5 discrete areas near Trail, Grand Forks, and Midway; and within the Okanagan/Similkameen and Thompson/Fraser watersheds.

Consultation period: 2014-06-05 to 2014-08-04
