Haha, saying what one 'knows' is the only way to get a response on here sometimes I am not that young, I should have clarified, I have been breeding kingsnakes for 10 years, I have been studying herps alot longer. They fascinate me and are my entire life. Im sure you can relate. I also have a few connects of my own(scientifically) and have learned alot about the snake brain. There are some un-disputable facts regarding the snake brain, that new herpers should know. Like you guys said, it has taken YEARS to learn what you know, and most of us have to start with the basics before advancing to the level of bonding. It may be simple to you, but to others it can be misinterpreted. The one thing that I hear from you guys repeatedly is it took you more than 10 years to think outside the box. But you still had to start with the basics inside the box to advance to your level.
And in my area, we don't have king snakes, so I can only relay what I have learned from my captives. I am usually out observing and documenting garter and water snakes, but also milk snakes, fox snakes dekays snake. 90% of the time they are alone. But when they are together, its by their choice. I have even found different species sharing space(a little awkwardly)and if I am really lucky sometimes I find garter dens. Its amazing what you can learn from a mass amount of garter snakes. Especially if you return through the season, there is a set pattern of behavior they repeat year after year. I have no doubt snakes have colonizing behavior, we as humans just need to be very careful how we duplicate it, and if we can. My kings may be so far from there native land and bred so many times, they may have adapted their behavior to be loners. I'm telling you, if you saw they're behavior, you would know what i mean. They are very threatened by other kings. And while I don't have the wealth of knowledge you guys have, I do know bonding is brilliant, but not for the inexperienced.
