I was super stoked to find this guy, and it sure was a cool-lookin snake😎 #californiaherps #herps #herpsofinsta #herpsofinstagram #herping #bajacoachwhip #coachwhip #coachwhipsnake #snake #snakes #fast #photography #filters #filter
Eastern Coachwhip(Masticophis flagellum) 
Over the years I have had some very interesting experiences catching animals, but this animal takes the cake. @trinaplm and @kyleskritters can attest that it made a complete fool out of me multiple times in a matter of seconds, but the adrenaline rush it gave me is the kind of thing I live for. #coachwhipsnake #fieldherping #herpers_digest #herpers_digest #wildlife_perfection #vision_natura #snakesofinstagram #herpetology #neverstopexploring #createexplore #floridawildlife #floridaherps

Snake ribs poking through the tarp covering to our chicken coop. Snake; there to get the eggs, red tailed hawk; there to get the snake.

A nail in the foot during the chase and a bite on the forehead after capture, worth it. #coachwhipsnake #masticophisflagellum #fieldherping #herpetology #neverstopexploring #happytrailz #nature_shooters
The texts between my brother and I mostly concern snakes and other various reptiles or critters. I couldn't imagine a better brother to share adventures and stories with. #reptilefamily #bestbro #coachwhipsnake

Sonora has been an almost life changing snake for me and I am so grateful for the time I have had with him. Since the day he was rescued he has been the most aw inspiring snake I've had and a joy to work with, and now he is continuing his life with a really awesome person that has promised to cherish him! Haha sorry for this sounding so crazy I'm just so glad he's going to someone who is going to love and appreciate him for the amazing animal he is (and even give him a girlfriend!) thank you @repti_girl for being such a stellar human!! •

Happy World Snake Day! 🐍 🐍 🐍  This little guy can travel up to 15mph, but don't worry, he won't chase ya. Here are some myths about the beautiful Coachwhip Snake--
The primary myth concerning coachwhips, that they chase people, likely arises from the snake and the person both being frightened, and both just happening to be going the same way to escape. Coachwhips are fast snakes, often moving faster than a human, and thus give an impression of aggression should they move toward the person.

The legend of the hoop snake may refer to the coachwhip snakes.

Another myth of the rural southeastern United States is of a snake that, when disturbed, would chase a person down, wrap him up in its coils, whip him to death with its tail, and then make sure he is dead by sticking its tail up the victim's nose to see if he is still breathing. In actuality, coachwhips are neither constrictors (snakes that dispatch their prey by suffocating with their coils) nor strong enough to overpower a person. Also, they do not whip with their tails, even though their tails are long and look very much like a whips.

Their bites can be painful, but generally are harmless unless they become infected.

In parts of Mexico, where ranching is a way of life, these snakes are believed to wrap around the legs of cows and feed on their milk as if suckling leaving the nipple dry. They will also hook on any other mammal that produces milk, leaving the young baby dehydrated.

Ranchers also tell stories of "chirrioneras", which hypnotize women then latch onto their breasts to feed. If the woman has a crying hungry baby the snake would stick their tail in the babies mouth to keep the baby quiet while feeding, then leave, undetected. This leaves the baby malnourished and getting weaker while the mother cannot feed her baby because her breasts have been sucked dry. The story goes that the only way to know if the snake has been there is if the baby has sores around the mouth.

#kilitum #tilKUM2destroyyou The upperside of the#muddywaters_Dipset_dripdrip  #mudsnake is glossy, black. The underside is #redandblack, and the red extends up the sides to form bars of #reddish-pink.
Their heavy bodies are cylindrical in cross section, and their short tails have a terminal spine.
Their head scalation is distinctive in that they have only one internasal, no preocular, and one anterior temporal. The dorsal scales are smooth, and are arranged in 19 rows at midbody. Ventrals 168-208; anal plate divided; subcaudals 31-55.[5]
HabitatEdit
Mud snakes inhabit the edges of #streams and #cypress #swamps, among dense vegetation or under ground debris. Mud snakes are commonly used as reference points for several other #characters.
BehaviorEdit
Mud snakes are mostly aquatic, and nocturnal as they prey on #amphibians. They are known to use their sharply #pointedtails to prod prey items, leading to the nickname "#stingingsnake
The mud snake is one of a few animals which may be the origin of the #hoopsnake myth. J.D. Willson writes:
“ 	Mud snakes are sometimes known as “hoop snakes” because of the myth that they will bite their own tail and #rollafterpeople.[2] ”
The hoop snake myth has also been attributed to the #coachwhipsnake.

Here's some more shots from the battle today. I have a pretty long video I will cut down and post to Cafes and Campfires Facebook page later. #coachwhip #coachwhipsnake #texassnakes #texasreptiles #snakefight #reptilesofinstagram
I just spent the last 40 minutes taking video and pics of these two mating, well I think they were trying to, maybe fighting. They were both bleeding and there was a lot of biting and hissing going on. This is the first shot of about 200 I'll sort through later. @tx_snakewrangler help me out here, is this a mating dance? They never locked up in the 40 minutes I watched and were still at it when I left. #coachwhip #coachwhipsnake #texassnake #texaswildlife #texasreptiles #retilesofinstagram

So excited!!! This beautiful scaly friend was spotted by dad in our backyard! It is called a coachwhip a non venomous snake. And while taking his picture he slithered right by me about an inch or two from my shoe! Never forget the possibilities for adventures within your own backyard. #backyardadventure #photoventure #coachwhipsnake

My beautiful boy Sonora is out of hibernation too and took a mouse right away. You can see his stubby tongue without the fork from his injury. I just love coachwhips ❤️🐍🌞💫

Today while working I came across this cat, he was alive but barley I was actually looking for a #coachwhipsnake at the time I had previously seen in the area anyway so I walk up slow and wonder whether he was alive or dead, see breathing so I run to the truck grab water run back and begin giving small amounts long story short I called animal control gave location to come get the cat hoping that it would make it to the shelter but unfortunately he didn't make it, he's not in pain anymore and I'm happy I was able to be with him and do what I can to help him out a little #resteasy #cat #work ( he was alive in picture ) js

A very cooperative Coachwhip snake on the trail. 1) It wasn't large at all; 2) It let me walk right up to it; 3) It didn't exhibit any threatening behavior; 4) I don't know what kind it is; and 5) It was absolutely beautiful.

Gorgeous#eastern #coachwhipsnake found in our shed today. I think this is the same one hanging in our tree last spring. He is keeping our shed mouse-free. Didn't even strike when Brian pulled his saw out. #goodsnakes #nonvenomous #easterncoachwhip #oklahoma #Masticophisflagellum #oklahomareptiles #snakes #naturelovers #mflagellum #colubrid #wildlife
Common-spotted Whiptail at #goliadstatepark I love these little guys. They are very hard to photograph at times and are #fast and #quick #runners they are quite fascinating. There was a #coachwhipsnake nearby and they are hunters of these little lizards. These lizards are fast but the Coachwhip is fast to and able to catch these guys. They are one of my favorite lizards and one of the ones that can be found in large gatherings. #reptiles are so cool. #texas is full of wonder reptiles and amphibians. Some of the things you would be surprised we get. I just love looking for them even though I am not a true #herper I do like to look for them. I love reptiles and yes I do fancy myself a generalist so anything goes with me. I love all animals no matter what kind they are.

We've lived here almost 10 years, and this is only the second snake I have seen in my yard. 
It is a called a Red Racer, Coachwhip Snake. It is a Non-venomous snake, just checking things out, looking for lunch :) #snake #redracer #nonvenomoussnake #coachwhipsnake #desertliving #snakesofinstagram #reptilesofinstagram #photography #myhobby #hobbies #wildlife #godscreatures #AandBDesignStudio #arizonawildlife #arizona

A pair of curious Coachwhips keep an eye on our Civil Engineer Victor while he assessed the flood impacts at Stephen F. Austin State Park a couple weeks ago. #txstateparks #wildlifewednesdays #igtexas #snakes #coachwhipsnake #sfastatepark
