    Re: king question....

    Now I can say that I have never met a mean king snake.... I would have to say go for a more rare speice they almost always make for more interesting pet's... I have seen alot of snake go to the "every body has one of these" type of thing.. I have just bought a durango king snake for a friend and it was just the nicest thing in the world.. they don't get very big and 3' cage would be a good size for the rest of its life.. very nice coloring kinda like a gray banded but better.... well it is fine to ship to colder climets they put lil' heater packs in with the snake... Now a california king is very nice pet cheep and you will be able to find many different types of morphs of them which will make it a very fun pet for you to buy you can look for a long time before getting the perfect one...
    Well I hope I can help..

        Benttoe is speaking of mine. His name was snappy for obvious reasons. If you can get a Lavender Albino you'll be very pleased. 8)
