Hi I have a Holbrock kingsnake. I don’t know how old he is and I’ve had him for a month and a half.

This last Friday I went to pick him up as normal and he started rattling his tail and coiled then kept attacking even when I had closed the cage. I fed him and he ate 3 pinkies and he’s still acting like he’s hunger and he’s still very aggressive and attacking at me through the glass. Any suggestions on what’s going on

My kings use to act like this when their young...its normal but with regular handling they’ll mellow down as they get older.

hello,

i have a male cali king about 2.5 years old and he is simply an attention whore to put it bluntly....

i have recently adopted a female albino king and she is in the enclosure next to his and ive noticed a sudden spike in his aggression levels(such as striking at the glass, coiling in attack mode, that creepy yet oh so cute tail rattle and then there is the constant sizing me up thru the glass (still cute)

could it be that he senses the ONLY female snake in the room or is this just him being moody due to the new additions??

just wondering, cuz out of my 10 years of snake keeping ive never once been bitten till my darling cali decided to taste my finger......

My Cali king is still young and he’s housed across from my cinnamon bp and he keeps staring and trynna get through so I cover the bp size so he couldn’t see. Ever since I got the bp he’s been even more active and comes out at night when the bp does. Your Cali king may smell the new member of the family and got him kinda on the edge.

thanks!

even tho he bites like a boss hes still my angel ive also noticed him always being at the end of his enclosure dong like a "rub rub" with his face when he sees her......

yet it doesnt seem to look like a aggression thing....more like hes trying to impress her.....

im not a breeder so i have to ask, whats the chances that my cali has his hopes on baby making????

(never bred and dont like breeding)

Out of all snakes I think king snakes are tricky to breed because they eat other snakes and chances are one of the mates may get eaten that’s why you have to pay attention to kings during breeding.
