I know this is an old post but it's quite normal for kingsnakes and all colubrids with which I've worked, to be a bit spastic or high tempered if they're handled or disturbed in any way during hibernation. Your snakes stressed behavior likely had little or nothing to do with it having a stuck shed and it was just reacting the way they normaly do when they get disturbed while in a state of brumation.
