I recently adopted a Cali. adult King Snake, I've had her for 3 days now. Today after putting her back in her tank, I noticed when my child went up to tank to look at her, she began to rattle her tip of tail like a Rattle Snake! I'm guessing this could explain why the tip of her tail is so hard compared to my cornsnakes tail, more like callused/hard. Did you ever hear of king snakes rattleing their tails? Also why do they do that? Any advice or help would be appreciated on this topic and king snakes in general. This is my first king snake. She is different then my cornsnake. Thank you
