Heres The problem, you started off by saying you know this and that, based on your ten years experience and your field work. You can tell us your age if you like, but by your comments, your young, in both areas, AND THAT IS A GOOD THING.
In my case, I am a SoCal boy, and caught my first cal king in the late 50's, hahahahahahahaha Bred my first cal kings in 1962 and have bred them ever since. If you ask me what I learned in the first decade, my answer would be, not a whole lot. Well absolutely nothing. Very little. That is compared to what I know now. What I did learn was, not much is known about snakes. I learned how to find them, but not how to find what is important to them. For instance, have you found pairs? Eggs? nesting sites? watched them year after year? have you found more then one king under one piece of AC? Or several within a small area, like 100 ft by 100ft.
My bet is, you've done the last two. If you have, how come you did? Cause if they were cannibilisitic you would not find that. Do you find one area is better for kings then others in the same general area? These type things are telling. The key here is for you to think, not know.
