Name that snake.

What kind of snake is this? My son captured a video of it today on the way home from school. Rattlesnake? King snake? Poisonous or not? It's moving its tail like a rattler but it otherwise doesn't look like any i've seen. Video here. This was in southern Utah. (And yes, he's been warned about approaching snakes in future...)

What's this snake on our deck?

We were cleaning up out back for a cookout, and I spotted this little guy. Does anyone know what kind of snake this is? My guess was that it was not poisonous based on the head shape, but I don't know if that rule applies to baby snakes as well. More inside. [more inside]

What snake-themed song did I hear?

On the radio I heard an old-sounding (1960s?), female-fronted pop-rock song that had the lyrics "you tremble and you shake / when he moves like a snake". What song is it?

NameThatCartoonFilter

Saturday morning movie type cartoon, (I don't believe it was a series)...late 80's or early 90's...kids play in backyard (specific memory of them playing on a swing set) and they venture into some caves. The caves were mostly red. Here's the key: One of the girls had a pet snake that she kept hidden in her shirt..I think it was named slimey. Any ideas? I remember a weird feeling I would get when watching this "movie"....like it was almost scary, but then I knew there was nothing to be afraid of..... Thanks! :)

Is there a herpetologist in the house?

My son's pet California King snake is acting very odd. Does anybody have an experience with this behavior in snakes? The snake is about 6-7 years old, bred in captivity. We've had him since he was a little less than a year old. He is 4 feet long and eats 1 adult mouse (frozen) a week at this time of year. Google turns up a handful of snake forum posts describing this same behavior, but no real answers. [more inside]

"This is going to require a serpentectomy."

Is the x-ray the doctors are looking at in this advertisement fake? It looks like someone with a snake lodged in their pelvis. I can't imagine what it could be if it was real.
