Honestly, kingsnakes don't have brains like us, they can't bond to anything. You can condition the snakes for handling, and some even appear to enjoy it. They are active and curious, but they will never miss you or even desire attention. The best you can do is handle them a couple times a week(wait at least 2 days after a meal)and they will eventually learn your not a threat and get used to being handled. I have some kings that will crawl right out onto my hand, because they know they can get out and explore.(and escape if your not careful, they are also not loyal, lol)Handling tame kings is in my opinion, one of the highlights of having a snake.
