    I don't know personally, so I googled Californai King Snake Breeding. The folks at NERD(New England Reptile Distributors) suggest that Cali's can become sexually mature anywhere from 18 months to 3 years of age. I did not see any specifics about male vs. female age of sexual maturity. Hope this helps.

    Well as to havent had the guts lol...yet !!...been sent a snake grabber from the states but as it's a bit rattlesnake ish !!! as in large...
    Might crush the poor l guess it's a case of grin and bear it and handle him tail first see what happens...

    Hows your calis...blade and storm at handling ?

    Blade is a dream snake, he is peace it self and loves being handled by anybody. I try not to handle Storm because it really stresses her, so, she is just a display snake and she is happy about it. ;) Both of them have escaped before and I must say that with Blade's disappearance I was much calmer than Storm. When I saw Storm was gone I broke out in tears! Funny, you would think that I would feel more for Blade.:rolleyes:

    Hie-hie, I cant believe you are still looking for guts!:p My dear friend then this is the time to grin and bear it and handle him - not tail first - but body and all!:D

    This is what I did in the beginning and still do with Storm. Open the cage and just tickle Mooks to come out by himself. When he is in such a position that you can pick him up, then, just slowly scoop him up. You need to stay very calm and you need to move very slowly. Allow Mooks to move from your one arm to the other arm.

    I promise you, if he does bite, which I doubt, it is only a shock nothing else. There is really no pain involved and it happens very fast. But that must be the last thing on your mind because I have a feeling that Mooks will be like Blade.;)

    You calling Rocky...Mooks we will try and handle him again...its feeding tomorrow so l will promise l will try next week..l want a pic on my arm to prove
    Your cali's are superb looking and a great set up..
    Our set up is different as his viv is above the ground and on top of Blondies our rat snake..
    So be a bit awkward to let him come out on his own without a free dive to the floor lol..
    But as my wife keeps saying we must try and handle them more ...l did handle lily when we got her and she never tagged me should have continued really ...she's getting more upfront coming to the front of the viv..but still scurries back when l open the viv...
    So will let ye know how it goes next week hopefully with a pic to prove it...if he stays still long
