Upscale,
The key w/ kings is lack of stress. The first month of me having them consisted of fresh water and proper temps,no interaction whatsoever. The Kings had a very secure hide box and were not offered food.After this time period,they seem to get whats going on and their stress level is very low. Then the feeding begins..everything f/t for parasite purposes, and the food item was always placed right at the entrance of the hide box. This is so the site and smell is right there and the kings doesn't have to leave the security of the the box in order to get the meal. After this for a little bit it snowballs into a consistent routine and they will take the food off of tongs in no time..haha(not always). Now,getting them to eat different item like rodents is a WHOLE other ballgame which took a lot of time and trail and error to figure it out..

and of course all snakes and situations are different...this is the stuff that seemed to help me.

glad you guys enjoyed the pics,too
