I doubt this cross would be possible as I believe that the Scarlet Snake is only distantly related to the Elaphe/Lampropeltis/Pituophis complex that is so well know for it's ability of hybridize.

I'm glad to hear you're working with Scarlet Kingsnakes. Not the easiest Lampropeltis but very neat little snakes.

As far as keeping Scarlet Snakes, many have had success with keeping these animals without water bowls and offered a mixture of beaten chicken egg and reptile vitamins. I think some have also added small amounts of canned reptile food but don't quote me on that.

I'm not clear as to how long these animals have been maintained in this matter.

Have you tried this feeding method?

If I were to keep them I'd also keep a colony of Paroedura pictus - a very prolific egg-laying gecko from Madagascar. I think a Scarlet Snake could eat one of their eggs.
