This response to a threat from Garters does not seem to be absolutely hard-wired.  Some wild-caught snakes I have handled have done it, others have not.  I caught one when I was 13 who wrapped itself around my wrist and stuck out its little tail and ‘rattled’ like mad!  It was so amusing I took it into the house to show my parents.  They liked snakes a whole lot less than I did and they were not amused.  But I thought it was hysterical.
