Yes, but they are usually not agressive. Most attacks are accidental encounters and the snake takes the blame when it does happen. Humans attack more snakes then the reverse behavior, and most often the snake is not a threat to people or property and are a valuable part of the ecosystem.

No - they don't. They haven't got the necessary brain-functions to enable them to recognise people.
