You made some good points, defended by logic, reason & specific examples. I greatly value your insight, and learned something from this exchange of words. You are absolutely right: He or his ancestors could have been from many regions, not just from the Canals area.

I will always wonder if he's wild-caught. From what I've read, the practice of collecting in the Canals area continued at least until the late 1990s - and may have continued until today. Also, with Florida Kings, I'm not sure how commonly they are now captive-bred. Most found in the pet trade may still be wild-caught.

I've only had mine for a month, and I'm surprised at how he does NOT jerk nor flinch when I touch him when he's out of his vivarium exercising, or when I pick him up. In regular handling, he's less skittish than most Kings, and much less so than most Milks.

However, his feeding response is legendary. When he's hungry, he's not trustworthy. So far, he has nipped at both feet, and yesterday he tried to swallow my thumb. (Showing no signs of aggression all the while.)

He's an interesting character, and I'm enjoying the travels upon the Road of Adventure & Learning. It was fun chatting with you for part of the journey.

Until next time...
