i have got a cali king, the sanke feeds very well and will eat everything you feed unless in shed. there is one problem with them that unless you you know wot you are doing they CAN too much and become overweight, this is more of a problem with kings than in other snakes. mine is a vicious little git too!!!!!! lol

Kings are lovely snakes. And they'd only become overweight if you do not provide enough space for them to move around, and If you overfed them.
They are good in terms of feeding. If you are going to handle one wash your hands after touching pinkies/mice etc. (even pet rabbits ;)) because they are hardly the smartest of snakes and will try and swallow your fingers. Most let go after a while.
My favourite are the speckled :)

never had any problems feeding kings at home or at work. Follow the above advise. Hav'nt got a fav but if i had to choose probably my Thayers or NNY's Peach Thayers.
