New yearling brooks kingsnake question

Hello! My daughter recently took in a yearling brooks kingsnake (previous owners no longer wanted him because he lost his bright color). Very nice snake, calm and curious. But he tends to shake his tail occasionally. I know from my other king snakes that would mean they were scared, but that is not what I'm seeing from this little guy. At first I thought it was excitement. But today he did it when he had every appearance of being relaxed and calm. I've never had a brooks or florida king before, though, and am wondering if they're more prone to this behavior, maybe I'm reading him wrong, or this little guy is just quirky?
Thanks in advance for your advice.
