Nice post, Aaron. And yes, I've noticed differences too.

I kept Sinaloans, Nelsons and Pueblans. As much as they are similar, I have seen a noticeable difference in behavior between Pueblans and Sinaloans/Nelsons. Like you mentioned, Sinaloans are on the move, especially at dusk. I almost feel bad, they seem like they need huge cages just to get that energy out by letting them crawl, though we all know they do great in "normal" sized cages. Pueblans on the other hand seem incredibly content in more commonly-sized cages, or even smaller cages. The babies I produced (Puebs) would feed regularly in a deli-cup, but not always in a relatively larger cage, say a 10 gal. My baby Sinaloans on the other hand would gladly feed while in a 10gal tank. In fact, it almost seemed like they preferred it. Sinaloans are a much more "get out there and hunt" snake. And they are communal as all heck.

Here is a Pueblan using a "leaner" rock against a heat pad, a setup I used for some mtn kings. I tried this years ago, kind of neat to see a milk do the same thing.
