Beautiful snake!! There are a lot of resources available on husbandry and their habitat. A good resource to start with is the book named "Zonata" by Mulks/Merker 2004 published by LM Digital. It gives very insightful information from habitat to responsible stuartship of the species by all enthusiast. Breeding information is pretty straight forward with these snakes. Resources are readily available. Just search the topic on breeding for any kingsnake. In the Sierra Nevedas, where your 2 males originated, it gets pretty cold in the winter. It often snows in the San Bernardino mountains and San Jacinto mountains from November through April. So a cooling period is required to stimulate breeding. Oh, you still need a female. That will be a tougher task to accomplish. Glad to see another Zonata enthusiast on the forum. Please post more pictures when you have time. Oh, I'm curious, do you know which local your male Zonatas are from. Are they from the San Bernardinos mountains or the San Jacinto mountains?
