In Reply to: Coachwhip Snakes posted by anissa on April 27, 2000 at 11:04:22:
: Is it true that this snake is capable of beating a human with it's tail and then sticking its tail in your nose, to find out if you are still breathing?
Absolutely not. The name coachwhip comes from the fact that they are long, slender, tapered snakes that are usually dark brown or blackish, with large sccales that give them a braided appearance much like the whips used to drive horse teams in the old days. People who heard of the snake and its name, assumed it was able to do these things and that that was how it got its name. Pure ignorance on the part of these people, like most snake tales (or is that tails?) Later KW
