Got one out of our warehouse 2 weeks ago, the markings on the B&W pic are about the same, and the head is a lil bit triangular. Almost mistook the one I saw as a copperhead in the low light of the warehouse

Picked up one of those for the first and last time many years ago. They have no trepidation about bitting at all.

This one just has a white chin like almost every black racer I've ever seen. Black rat has the entire underbelly white with blotches. The head is different on a rat snake, too.

Zero doubt, that's a Black Racer. Ratsnake head morphology is very different, also Racers have smooth scales with a satiny finish. Ratsnakes have keeled scales and a glossy finish.

Coach whip and black racer are two separate snakes.
