Description

Observed a pair copulating in a sunny patch along the sandy trail; snakes were about 3 feet long...

Never got a look at their heads (adrenalin was rushing as I turned my camera on and focused)... and then it went into overdrive when another male (presumably) raced in to join the melee.

Reviewing photos makes clear the "white chin" of the SBR.

Description from Wikipedia

Coluber constrictor priapus, commonly known as the southern black racer, is one of the more common subspecies of nonvenomous Coluber constrictor snakes in the Southeastern United States. The name priapus refers to the proximal spines of the hemipenes being much enlarged into basal hooks, which is characteristic of this subspecies. These snakes are quite active during the day, which increases the chance of sightings. They will eat almost any animal they can overpower, including, rodents, frogs,...
