Hello, next week I will be recieveing my first snake. Unforunately its current owner can no longer take care of it. It is a banana california kingsnake. She said its 2-3 years old. She discribed it as having a little "attitude" and ocational bites. She also admited to not handling it as much as she probably should have. I have been researching non stop on kingsnakes. Normally I never get any sort of animal without doing extenseve research and prep time but this is a unique situation. I really want to have a good relationship with this snake so I've been reading alot. I know she only feeds it twice a week and some forums said they are know to bite mainly when hungry. SO maybe it needs to be fed three times a week? I know she also feeds it in its terrarium which I've read is a no no. I also read that puting some sort of worn clothing in its terrarium will get it use to my scent? I would just like everyones advice. I really want to do this right and have a good relationship with this beautiful hissy noodle.
