I didn't mean to imply that I think they are unable to learn. I have seen many learn things. I just assumed they didn't have the ability to copy the action of another after viewing it one time. I could certainly be wrong about that though.

I've seen snakes in my collection learn routines. Some very clearly know when it's handling/ cleaning time or feeding time even before the door to my freezer in the snake room opens... they just know what's up based on what I'm doing or possibly the time of day or time since last feeding. I usually feed in the evening every wed and sat and several snakes are ready for food within seconds of me entering the room during those times, but will remain calm any other time.

I've also seen western coachwhips doing some pretty amazing things. 1. hunting young cottontail rabbits in a group. 2. crawling up a pickup, onto a tin carport, across the carport, putting their head down and around the edge to reach a bird nest... it's was like something you'd see a squirrel do to get at a bird feeder.
