The racer sheds I have found at this locale rival the record lengths recorded of a northern racer (though stretched as a shed are near and over my height). I've never seen this before. It's not just one snake, I've found 3 sheds; males and females - with the largest being a male, based on tails, which had a generous shed estimate of 177cm. I think it's really neat because I'm used to only seeing them around 3-4ft
