Ain't got enough energy to chase one of them down anymore
Piss one off and they will chase you down, But I suspect you know this?
Nah, I think hoop-snakes are the only ones that will chase you down, well them and cotton-mouths. Did you ever encounter a stinging snake? The ones that grandma saw stinging a tree on her way to church and when she returned, the tree was dead?
Black runners will chase you
Never heard of them before, thanks @Bishop.
Why would anyone run? They have velcro instead of teeth, no claws, arms, or legs, so what could they do if they caught you?
Lol, Nope, Ive had coach whips as we call them chase me and cotton mouths come at me fangs bared!
The primary myth concerning coachwhips, that they chase people, likely arises from the snake and the person both being frightened, and both just happening to be going the same way to escape. Coachwhips are fast snakes, often moving faster than a human, and thus give an impression of aggression should they move toward the person.
The legend of the hoop snake may refer to the coachwhip snakes.
Another myth of the rural southeastern United States is of a snake that, when disturbed, would chase a person down, wrap him up in its coils, whip him to death with its tail, and then make sure he is dead by sticking its tail up the victim's nose to see if he is still breathing. In actuality, coachwhips are neither constrictors (snakes that dispatch their prey by suffocating with their coils) nor strong enough to overpower a person. Also, they do not whip with their tails, even though their tails are long and look very much like a whips.
Their bites can be painful, but generally are harmless unless they become infected.
In parts of Mexico, where ranching is a way of life, these snakes are believed to wrap around the legs of cows and feed on their milk as if suckling leaving the nipple dry. They will also hook on any other mammal that produces milk, leaving the young baby dehydrated.
Ranchers also tell stories of "chirrioneras", which hypnotize women then latch onto their breasts to feed. If the woman has a crying hungry baby the snake would stick their tail in the babies mouth to keep the baby quiet while feeding, then leave, undetected. This leaves the baby malnourished and getting weaker while the mother cannot feed her baby because her breasts have been sucked dry. The story goes that the only way to know if the snake has been there is if the baby has sores around the mouth.
