    He is pretty. On a side note, I would not recomend handling while feeding. It greatly increases the risk of a re-gurg

    He is a looker, dont handle while feeding cause they will regur it back up

    funny you say that....i have many friends that have fed all sorts of snakes in hand and never had one regurge.

    not only that but i personally have done it 1,000s of times and never had one regurge.

    but i suppose if someone don't how to handle snakes properly then i guess anything can happen.

    you're welcome, i'm glad you like the pics.
    kings are great snakes...but corns make better captives.

    I agree that corns make better captives, I have several myself and they are so nice and mellow.

    actually i been thinkin about drifting out of kings and back into corns.

    corns appeal to more ppl...both noobs and experts.
    and corns usually sell better at shows....whenever i sold at a show my corns always outsold my kings.
    ppl love cheap snakes....the cheaper the better,lol!

    Plus corns are a bit less nippy.

    and aren't they a bit less likely to musk? :)

    That too! None of my corns have ever musked me.

    i've had small corns musk and poop when they were getting probed.

    but i've only been musked by adult corns 3 or 4 times.


    one time one of my cals flung its musk at me and got me dead in the eye,lol!

    I think if the snake will eat while you're holding it, it must be comfortable enough to not regurge. Neither of mine would do that, though.

    sometimes it takes awhile for them to get used it.

    i started messing around with snakes about 50 yrs ago but they still can be a challenge sometimes,lol

    See, I don't agree. My kings are way more mellow than my corn was.

    i was referring to common kings not thayeri kings.

    its not unusual for thayeri to be mellower than corns.
