Biology

The Antiguan racer is strictly diurnal (2), remaining active in the heat of the day but often seeking out dense vegetation to provide shade (4). Adults feed primarily on anole lizards (Anolis species) that are caught by ambush, lying in wait camouflaged beneath a thin layer of leaf litter with only their heads protruding (2). The main predators of the Antiguan racer are introduced rats and mongooses.
