Re the large display tank, I could only put one king in a tank....I think if I put in more, they would eat each other. Then there is the problem of keeping the tank cool in the summer. I don't think the snakes could tolerate 110 degrees for very long...I tried that once with a gopher snake and it was dead by the end of the day. I have no AC except in my bedroom and I only run it when I am home, because of the electricity cost. Same thing for winter, where it can get down to freezing in the rest of the house, (a poorly insulated mobile home), with only my bedroom kept above 65 to 70 degrees with a little space heater, and then only when I am in there. Right now I keep all my snakes in the bedroom, but I don't like to. I need something better without spending a lot on a dedicated snake house with AC and Heat. If it weren't for the temperature extremes here, I would not have a problem.
