For some reason I love Black Kings immensely. Maybe it's because I never see them in the sea of Cals, FLs, chained, and to a lesser degree speckleds.

I really enjoy trying to mimic their natural habitat as much as I can. I've kept snakes in aquaria and bred them in racks over the years, but I have come to the conclusion I enjoy taking care of the plants just as much as the snakes. The only problem is, these guys are DESTRUCTIVE!

Does anyone have any tips on keeping a planted habitat with kingsnakes? I'm trying to feign away from using plants that look out of place. For example, I know pothos would flourish with some light trampling and burrowing, but they don't exactly look like Southeastern American temperate fauna.

Does anyone have any tips?
