It's not even different with the species - it's literally different with every single snake. I have a cal king with a nasty attitude that just bites - no warning, no coil, no nothing - he just bites. And I have another cal king that will tail rattle a lot, then go into strike position, then do nothing because she is full of crap.
Each snake will have its own reactions to a stressful situation. You have to learn to read it, not its species.
