    Finally got some pics of my newest guy, the cali king.

    Getting them uploaded is a chore (us dial up users are still out here...), but hey... here they are:




    This guy... I'm telling you, he's almost a better eater than my one corn, and I never thought I'd say that. He eats like a pig. lulz

    For the record, this is my first king. I've always been a python/boa kind of guy, and wasn't planning on buying any more colubrids... but I went to the expo a month ago or so and saw this guy... and took him home. I fell for a king snake, so sue me. :)

    Gorgeous = )

    I think this is probably one of my first posts in the forbidden snake forum zone, but I saw this pic and had to comment. That is a very pretty snake, and I've seriously considered getting one at almost every show I've been to. Something about the cali kingsnake, they are my favorite colubrid by far. I LOVE the colors on your little guy, and the amount of white on the head and the uniform bands...very nice snake you have there. Thanks for sharing!

    Thanks man. :)

    Yeah, his colors are near perfection for a king. Throw in he's one of the best eaters I've yet had, there's not a mark (deform) on his body... and he's taming down quickly, and you've got a snake that's pretty darn awesome. ^_^

    He was the only "banded" cali king at the expo, which may have had something to do with me taking him home.

    Thanks for the comments. :)

    Also, if you're tempted to get into the snake world ever... from what I can tell so far, a king would be a good choice. He's pretty easy to care for. *thumbs up*
