I have kept and bred Cal kings since the sixties, so I use them as a colubrid standard.
When comparing the two, one area really stands out, and that's temps. Lets say a temp range of 65 to 85F works really well and year around if that's what you want. You can maintain kings in the 65 to 75F range and they feed and grow(slowly) but do maintain activity. When I keep my hogs at that 65 to 75F range, they act like they are on the north pole. They simply shut down.
So Mark, keep an eye on that please. Would love to hear others experience with that. Thanks
