well our king just had another shed yesterday. I came home from work to see it laying in front of him. Does anyone elses kingsnake like to shake its tail at you when you try to pick him up? I know its a warning sign for "your irritating me yo.." lol. But once i pick him up he's just fine. I know kingsnakes are a little more agressive than a BP, and i originally thought it was because he was beging to shed, but now that it's over with he still does it.. this is the first time i noticed him doing it.
