Re: How likely are kingsnakes to try to eat themselves

I watch a ton of animal/reptile YouTubers, and nobody else even mentions that it could happen, meanwhile Clint makes it sound like it's just as real of a possibility as a crested gecko dropping it's tail. So you see why I was confused. I'm glad I came here and asked.

Can I ask, why are you guys not fans of sand boas?
Exactly!!! You're on the right track, no doubt.

As for KSBs...honestly, first it's about looks to me. My personal opinion, though.
I also don't like how small they stay (hypocritical considering I have a hognose, but he's freaking awesome) or that they are pretty much always burrowed and hidden (hypocritical considering I have a BP and a Borneo STP, but they're much larger and I love both species).
They're one species I've never even handled, so can't comment there. I just never took an interest in KSBs with all the other species out there that I like.
There's certainly nothing wrong with KSBs, I know a handful of people who seem to enjoy theirs. They're just not for me. In all honesty, especially by comparison to other species, they jyst kinda bore me.
