What are the temps? Cal kings do not like it too hot, like 85 one side and as cool as you can on the other.

Cal kings can be very aggressive feeders, and they can bite just like you described.

The regurge can be cause by protozoa, the mice you are using, temps, stress, etc. What is the cage setup like? Substrate? Thawed mice? Look online for Flagyl (metrodinazol I think). That helps with protozoa. Most snakes do not have a problem, but stress can cause an unbalance of protozoa in the snake, resulting in regurging.

An m&m sized regurge is not as bad as an entire meal, so he may be OK for future meals. Not sure. Please describe the setup and temps.
