Adult king snakes average 4-5 feet. She had her first meal last wednesday and *ahem* did her business a day or so later, which is a really good sign that she's healthy. She's pretty active when it's quiet in the fish room, she's getting used to the family activity and doesn't immediately hide anymore.
Now that she's had a week to acclimate and has eaten at least once we'll be able to handle her....for now it's a slow go since it's been a week of no one touching her, and she's still a bit timid. Last night ~ 2:30 a.m. when i saw her out i carressed her body a bit then let her relax again. tonight i'm hoping to get her out of the tank and let her hang out on me.
I do have a picture of her entier habitat, when i have a chance (and remember LOL) i'll post it. Right now she's in a 20 gallon tank. I grew up in the mountains with snakes all around.I was so fascinated that i used to bring home any random garter snakes, salamanders, newts, toads, etc....much to my mothers and grandmothers horror of course....
