I was curious to read in what context the comments you read were mentioned if you found them.
While I can appreciate your enthusiasm I'm afraid you might be reading too much into what you are hearing. You will hear many unusual sounds from various species of snakes when they are upset. Especially from species of ratsnakes and pituophis which often hiss loudly.
The sounds they make can vary greatly depending on how upset they are, how long they continue threatening at one time and other things. At times they make clean hissing sounds and at other times when they are more upset or upset for longer periods time, the sounds they make can get much raspier including clicking type sounds.
What I'm getting at is that the more snakes you keep and the longer you keep them you will realize that they don't intentionally make paticular repetitive sounds.
I've heard blue beauties, trinket rats and cape gophers make some sounds when they are really pissed off that you wouldn't believe. The longer you hear them do it you will realize that it varies every time they get upset. They don't try to make exact sounds.
There are several guys with lots of experience who post on this forum regularly that will hopefully add their thoughts.
