    looks like a milk snake of some sort.......as for the rattling the tail, most New World colubrids do that due to the fact that there are rattle snakes through most of the Americas......sounding like a rattler by wiggling your tail in things like dry leaves is the next best thing to being a rattler.......

    lots of generations of the ones inclined to doing that surviving by making a predator think twice

    Well, are milk snakes usually aggressive? I think I found something, could it be a young black racer?

    Milk/corn snake.. get them all the time around here, although garter snakes are more typically what you find. They can get to a pretty good size and yes they tend to a bit aggressive and feisty if you corner them.
    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    But why would any of them ever be inclined to do it if they never had a rattle?

    swords......hard to say what kicks this kinda stuff into the gene pool.....

    Ant.....in my experience, most young snakes tend to be aggressive because everything eats them.....around here we have alot of bullsnakes....they are a pain to handle until they hit about 4 foot....up until 3 foot or so everything eats them, foxes, hawks, coyotes........once they hit 4 foot they start just being defensive and not so bitey.......cause they are starting to get big enough that they can scare off most predators.....at 4 foot if yah stumble onto one they let out a hiss that sounds about like if yah punched a good sized hole in a tire....its quite loud......at this point they tend to be a bit defensive but you can usually grab them and if yah dont try and force them to do anything and just let them flow through your hands kinda thing they rarely bite....hatchling to 3 foot they tend to bite first thing.....

    Okay, thanks. My brother went to let it go. (he wouldn't drive me because he wanted to go straight to his friend's house after words) I also got pics of a cool little ringneck but, It was hard enough to get that one up. (my computer is being fixed)
