Kingsnakes cannibalistic as defined by the zoological dictionary. That is consuming their own species. But not cannibalistic in a group behavioral point of view.

The point is, no one told kingsnakes, that a snake that occurs outside its range is a kingsnake or not. They do not read it, or even know what species are. That is your human thoughts that you warm me of. In the world of kingsnakes, you need to learn what WE means. You, we vs. Them. Them is everything not WE(or us)

Bonding is inherent and learned. THey cannot bond with something that Is not present. Bonding in animals is primarily age based. That is, its done when young.
I want to ask you this, in a world where there are no laws, And nothing prevents anything else from killing you. What would be safer, establishing bonds with those you hatched and grew up with. or wandering around hoping to find another snake that may or may not eat you. Then if you find a mate and it works out good. Would it be better if you keep looking for a new mate, they may or may not eat you. Or go back and visit the same one that you already established a working relationship with(he didn't eat you) Its not complicated and its simple. And its what they do.
You can argue all you want, but I asked you to explain how come my kings have lived in pairs and groups or decades and decades, same for Bluerosy and others, and we are talking WITH THE EXACT Same snakes you have. Oh by the way, Those high whites and yellows are a line I developed decades ago. I also was the first to breed albino kings and established albino banded, stripes, desert black and whites. Newporters etc. And they all lived in groups.
