Almost imposible if the King is any larger it will eat the corn or rat for breakfast.

The result from a corn and california king breeding is called a jungle corn, you can breed various corns and rats and kings together. Sometimes you'll have nice results sometimes you'll have ugly results and sometimes you'll end up with 1 fat snake.

Whether or not you should breed them together is a different question. Some people are gung ho about it, others are opposed to it, and others don't care.

Thanks for helping

Right now I dont have a breeding size king, I just wondered. So does that mean the king would have to be the male, doesnt the female need to be larger for snakes to breed?

Country:
When breeding jungle corns, the male should be the corn.

Please do not breed jungle corns if you do not have a purpose in mind, or simply because you do not have sexed pairs of king and corn.

Finding homes for jungles isn't easy and careful thought should be put into the breeding of hybrid snakes.

Hybrids

Hey, Do mutations like anery and albino ever occur in the wild?? They do dont they? Well could a mutation or color morph survive in the wild? Ive always been curious if they could.

Country:
Certain morphs occur naturally in the wild & it was orginally wild caught animals that are resonsible for all the various morphs you see today. Mind you they have been geneically manipulated every which way to become the morphs that they are & most of them don't occur naturally in the wild the way that they appear today. Albinos etc. usually don't survive very well in the wild as they stand out like a sore thumb to predators etc. whereas their "normal" colored siblings blend in quite well to the natural surroundings. Hybrids are a touchy subject for "purists", that is people who like to see things kept natures way, but we are MAN & we like to mess with every creature we encounter for some reason (because we can???) Some hybrids such as Jungle Corns/Kings the offspring can successfully reproduce also, but in a lot of cases you just end up with a bunch of "mules", hybrid animals that are sterile (not able to reproduce). Hope this answers a few questions. Mark I.
P.S. I will have both reg. JC's (100% het for albino) & Albino JCs available in the next couple of months.

Here's an example pic:
