Personally i think if you can afford the space to go bigger ...then do! kings can be very adventurous, active snakes so it would be nice to give an adult more space if you can ... even if the viv is the same length but deeper and a bit higher, like a 3x2x2. both the kings i used to have (cali king and mexican black king) were always climbing around and out and about during the day and night
