The 5-6+ foot-long Coachwhip Snakes of the USA and Mexico are slender, incredibly fast-moving creatures that chase down their rodent and lizard prey. Attractive and alert, they draw many admirers, but even when provided with huge enclosures, they prove too high-strung for most keepers. As wild-caught animals predominate in the trade, a vet exam is essential for new pets.
