I was at a local Reptile Store buying my frozen feeders. It was Saturday & busy. I overheard one of the employees tell a customer that he didn't want a baby Cal. King because they were mean, not good pets ... He had two as examples, that he'd taken in trade that bit "every time". One would hold on. He particularly didn't like that one. I expect, the only time he puts his hand in there is when he's feeding the rack & therefore smells like food. And if hand means food, then cleaning would also get a bite. I have an adult Cal. King F? who I LOVE. I am seriously considering going back to get him and would like experienced input about this problem. Also, I am enjoying seeing more posts on the Kingsnake forum.
