What type of king snake are we talking about? My experience is with Cali. Kings and Brooksi Kings. They are both wonderful pets and I would trust them not to bite. Having said that I never let the 5th graders I teach hold my bull snake. It has never bitten me or even threatend to do so, but that is one parent phone call I don't want to have to take. I'm the only one allowed to hold the snake in my room and the kids are welcome to pet it as long as I'm holding it in a way that makes it even more unlikely for someone getting bitten.
IMHO


:Today I met the son of one of my co-workers in the pet store and he has a adult king (in a very secure cage) that he said we could have if we would like. (Too many snakes and he's running out of room :) The kids have missed having a snake since our last corn died... According to him, it is very docile, and eats 5 mice every 2 weeks. (We raise our own mice in the classroom) Is this the type of snake that could be safely handled by 14 year olds? What is everyone's opinion? Thanks!
