Doesn’t it remind you of a leopard ? The Eastern milk snake is excellently camouflaged. When it slithers around its grassy habitat it’s nearly undetectable to its predators.
After it captures its prey, it strangles the prey before swallowing it. When the snake is attacked or disturbed, it makes its tail vibrate in order to mimic another well-known species, the rattlesnake. Despite this spectacle, its bite is not poisonous.
