Racers are nasty critters.
Not at all. I had a blue racer as a pet, growing up in Michigan. I caught it near an airplane hangar at a local municipal airport (not that that piece of info is pertinent whatsoever). I kept that snake for several years. It was an awesome pet.
All bull snakes have attitudes. That's how they got their name. LOL. I want one!
I wish, been trying to get back to AZ ever since I left. Lived in Prescott for just over 4 years.
