Hissy Fit by shadowfire-x Hissy Fit by shadowfire-x
The same bullsnake as before. Once again, it did a great deal of huffing, puffing, hissing, tail-vibrating, and bluff-striking.

Lol.. As sweet as they are in the wild, I'm sure they make extra-congenial captives.

I love the titles you've been giving to all of your shots, haha.

The way she's coiled up is so pretty :] Kind of like a looping figure 8.

Snakes with no....rattle(?) still vibrate their tails? I did not know that. :0 cool~

Yup! Almost all snakes will vibrate their tails when alarmed. The rattlesnake's rattle was just to step it up a notch.

These guys can put on quite a show, can't they? I've bred red-phase Texas Bulls and Northern Pines(same species, somewhat different color scheme)for many years, and even the babies can be feisty, but a lot of it is pure "bull" indeed, though I have gotten a few bites from these over the years! It's a bit worse than a Rat Snake bite, because these seem to have stronger jaw muscles and actually clamp down. Most become puppy-dog tame in no time, though. I take it that you must be in Texas, right? I ask because of the Texas Rat Snake in the other pic(Black Rats have black tongues; TX Rats have orangish tongues).

No, actually. I live in northern Missouri. That was indeed a black rat snake. I've never heard about the tongues before. Black rat snake adults don't really have any patterning on them like Texas rat snakes do. Black on top, with some red skin, and snow white underneath =)

I agree with you that she's beautiful. ^^ I like that "striking" pose. She looks peeeeved. X3 I'm so envious. I wish I found more snakes!

Heheh! They're not really dangerous... they can pack a nasty bite, I hear, but they aren't poisonous. I was about four feet away from him, just out of his strike range =D
