Hi Andrea,

Here is an article on the captive care of kingsnakes and milksnakes:

http://www.kingsnake.com/rockymountain/RMHPages/RMHkingsand.htm

I agree with the other posters that overall cornsnakes are a better choice, but there are some pretty good tempered kings and milks such as Sinaloan milksnakes and grey-banded kingsnakes. California kingsnakes in my experience have been a bit too enthusiastic in their feeding response (I've been bitten more than once by an overeager animal).

Snakes will eat reheated mice-to do this you put the frozen mouse in a plastic bag and float it in some hot water for about 10 minutes.

Hope this helps,

Petra Spiess
