How long before it calmed down after you caught it? It looks like you are not holding it very hard, just enough to keep it from falling.
I regularly catch Black Rat Snakes, like the baby in the picture, and they will calm down with in a few minutes after being caught. I even have pictures of one just laying across my hand. I guess I should get those up on my web page. Snakes are very beneficial in the number of mice, rats etc. that they catch and eat.
Glad to see another snake "lover" - at lease one that doesn't kill every one he sees. Copperheads and other venomous are a different story!! :-)
