I was pretty happy to find him. I've never caught one. I know a lot of people catch these around here. I think I might keep him as long as he eats. He's pretty docile too.

Nice!! He's got a lot more black in him than the ones I see in my area. If he doesn't readily take f/t (if that's what you feed), massage it well and rough up the hair some once it's warmed up and just before you give it to him. It seems to enhance the scent in just the right way for the finicky ones I've dealt with in the past.

When I first read this, I thought you were telling him to give the kingsnake a massage to work up his appetite LOL. Sometimes my brain thinks crazy stuff.

at first I wasn't so sure that it was a speckled because of the pattern. I don't know too much about naitive stuff and read that the speckles on juvies will form a band until it grows. I think its a beautiful king. I'm happy he ate also. I also got my problem eater hatchling retic that I got from Bob Clark to eat tonight also.

Also might add my box turtle and slider are eating well also. I normally won't keep wc reptiles because they won't eat, but this year I'm having all kinds of luck.

The pattern means it is probably a speckled/desert king intergrade. Like black rat snakes, we don't have very many true speckled kings here.

Because their to busy getting caught up on the horses hot wire and frying themselves! It was pretty wild, I heard this diz diz noise and it was dead laying on the wire burnt half way thru still sparking, the poor guy. And then you have people like my mom that takes a hoe after them unless i'm over there and see them first to chase them off. They should all thank me for saving their lives Laughing
