    I have a beautiful California King Snake with a very nice personality.
    I seem to be the one everyone sends their unwanted herps lately and as much as I love the snake, I have my hands full with my burmese python and all of my other reptiles. He eats one live mouse a week and has no problems feeding. He doesn't come with an enclosure, which is partially why I can't keep him. The ex-owner gave me a loaner for the time being.

    If interested, here is some additional info.
    I'm not experienced in shipping herps, but I'm doubtful that I'll find anyone nearby to pick this snake up. I'm willing to try shipping if it is going to be safe for the snake and if you are willing to pay shipping. By the way I'm broke--another reason for letting this sweetheart go--so while I'm not asking a specific amount of money for this snakes adoption, any donation the adopter feels apropriate would be appreciated and it will go towards the care of my other reptiles.

    I'm in GA if you would prefer someone closer. The cali king I have could use a pal. I couldn't keep them in the same enclosure though.

    :D Yeah, I know. That may be disasterous with kings. May wake up one morning and find one missing. It would make me nervous just putting them together to breed lol.

    I have often wondered how they put kings together to breed! :eek: I would have to watch them every second 'cause I'd be so paranoid they would eat each other!

    I am sorry to desagree but mi Kings live together al live and I only separeted them to let the female lay their eggs quietly...
    they are not as "canibals" as they are in nature for in nature they had to adapt but in captivity they always have food so...

    Though you do it successfully Bruno, please educate me on why your willing to risk the life of one of the snakes.

    As blunt as Herpboys question is, he has a point.
    Kingsnakes are cannabalistic to other snakes, even their own species. You may have lucked out this far but you are seriously asking for trouble by housing them together.
