Bullsnake Bullsnake  
A large bullsnake in Kansas is found on a dirt road. On approach it coils back defensively then strikes before slowly crawling away into a grassy field. This is a short excerpt from the video above showing the snake rear back in a defensive striking posture, then strike with a loud hiss, and continue to make a rattling hissing sound.
