 Active kingsnakes?

Im looking into getting a king or bull or possible some ratsnake.So Are all kingsnakes secretive or are any more active during the day then others? I do like the look of the brooks kings, especially one they call a peanut butter morph. Are they hiders or do they like being out and about occasionally?

It just depends on the snake. Some snakes are shy and others aren’t. I have currently have 2 corn snakes and 3 kingsnakes. Only the babies hide a lot. But once they get a little bigger and braver they are out a lot. But mostly in the mornings, evenings and throughout the night. They are nocturnal. Though I have a couple weirdos who stay up all day long.

Only one of the 9 species within the Lampropeltis complex is mainly diurnal - the Arizona Mtn king (Lampropeltis pyromelana) since it mainly hunt diurnal prey animals as small lizards and such.
