Hi Aaron, what there are we talking about, Fla or az?
First, montane kings are still kings and perform pretty much the same way.
All kings and most colubrids, metabolize in the same temp ranges. Whats different is, what temps they can survive or tolerate.
All kings are cool based snakes. Its just that some from northern areas and higher elevations can survive colder extremes.
Here in Az. montane snakes are montane, not for temp reasons, but for moisture reasons. Our mountains have 3 to 4 times the rainfall as the lower elevations. An example is, cal mountain kings are also montane, yet where oak woodlawns reach the ocean(sea level) there are zonatas at sea level. Same or rubber boas, which are normally higher up.
On a side note, I bred all the Mexicana without hibernating them.
