My "limited understanding" comes from over ten years of keeping snakes and breeding multiple species. I have also been studying reptiles namely snakes, on the field and in my own home. I suggest you take your attacks elsewhere, they are not taken well in this forum. When somebody gives you an honest answer from experience, and an open one at that, you should be a little more polite please. As for the colonizing, this is not a social behavior, most snakes only do it for wintering or breeding. The biggest mistake new kingsnake keepers make is applying human emotions an animal that is built on INSTINCT. Do some research on the brain of a snake. Scientifically, they lack a fully developed cerebrum(the part of the brains that controls emotions like love, trust affection). So they are not physically capable of these emotions. I am sure there are bonding methods, but if you think you can put any two kingsnakes together, and they will just bond like puppies, you are in for some BIG disappointments. I was also nice enough to give you pointers in the right direction about the subject you were interested in, without condoning your beliefs. I will not argue with you or attack you back, as I am very secure in my knowledge of these animals, and what they are like. If you are going to be in the kingsnake world, I suggest you keep an open mind and do ALOT research before attacking ANYONE on this forum.
