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?

Saturday morning movie type cartoon, (I don't believe it was a series)...late 80's or early 90' 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" 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.
