    We have some black kings..there is also a black milk though that is born tri-colored like normal milks, and then turns solid black as it grows older and such. I have a pic of one of the black kings posted in the king forum.

    Jacky, I would look into black rat snakes. They are very similar, and are readily available. Not to mention less expensive....

    I have a black striped king, he used to be quite agressive but is now very calm, they are a gorgeous snake, but can be nippy and musk a lot, although mine hasnt musked me in ages now, he seem to have a personality change over night.

    my albino kind still musks me though :p and tail rattles at me :)

    there used to be a black kingsnake at my old job that someone gave us. very beautiful. the first day we got him in he bit me. but after he settled in he was a little nippy in the tank but once you got him out he wasn't so bad. he was about 4 1/2 feet and a wonderful eater. :) very beautiful snake. strong grip, solid black and shiny scales.
