I’m in south Florida, so kingsnakes mean Florida king to me. I can tell you our kings will gobble fish, eels, snakes, frogs, turtle eggs, lizards, chicken gizzards- you name it. There are times when they will gorge themselves on fish just like moccasins do when the opportunity presents. As far as parasites, people do not eat wild rodents but regularly eat fish. I bet there’s less in fish. We can get frozen finger mullet at any bait shop that are cheap and shaped just right for easy snake “sausages”. In captivity the negative is always the smelly messy clean up from the feces, but I would bet they are a very good food source for any snake that will take them.
