    the ones around here dont look like timber rattlers....they dont even really look like our prairie rattlers either other than superficially with the square pattern down their back which if you look at snakes as a whole is prolly one of the most common patterns out there.......they look like a bullsnake ......there his sounds nothing like a rattler unless you really havent been around either very much.....there is a grasshopper species up her that sounds alot closer to a rattler than a bullsnake......a bullsnake just sounds like yah punched a hole in a tire......one long, very loud hiss.........

    My dad has a pet yellow rat snake that will also "rattle" its tail when approached while it's ingesting a meal.

    That's either a baby black racer, or a baby rat snake. They look very similar when they or born. They both are also very defensive. Like Rattler said, they calm down when as they get bigger. When they are babies they are the meanest snake alive. While they really can't even break the skin, they will bite everytime you get within range of them. They are fun to play with though.

    Im gonna say a corn snake of some kind, they very greatly in color but the pattern fits description.
    in my opinion it is not a black racer, ive raised many from eggs and the design doesnt look like that...
    brother and i raised many many snakes when i lived in florida, his job as a herpetologist and keeper at the zoo kept me fascinated in these animals...too bad i cant have snakes at my house here, step dad is terrified of them.

    It could have been a rat snake!?! I never would have touched it if I had known their babies looked something like that! They are one of the 5 species that are threatened or endangered in Massachusetts not to mention its illegal to harass/collect/possess/kill.

    Kris, I checked and corns don't live here, at least no source I have found says they do.

    I'm leaning towards ratsnake too. Juvenile rat and racers looks so similar that I said it could be either one. It's not a corn snake because they are not in Ma.
