Lots of kings do that. In fact, lots of snakes do that. What you are witnessing is what kingsnakes do, especially young ones.

Lucky for you brooks as adults tend to be one of the calmest kings you could have. But when young, they are just like any king, rather wary when confronted by someone or something they do not know. Including other kingsnakes. Tail vibrating is the common indicator.
