Here in central fla racers live primarily on lizards and rarely exceed 5' anymore, same goes for our local cornsnakes, but our coachwhips can attain 100" which is over 8', so you cant really compare, but if a racer grew to 8' its bite would compare to a same sized coachwhip, all the longtailed snakes have very similar habits, they live in the same habitats, all are exceptionally intelligent because they spend their whole lives being chased by everything from birds to tractors, I even believe they're the most intelligent, up there with the king cobra, but they even have similar head plates and labials, I've seen indigos with a head like a coachwhip and seen coachwhips with a head like and indigo. oh and the snake in my last post is a 90" male I found under a matress, his midbody scales were nearley the size of a dime.
