What temps are you keeping him at? Have you checked for mites? It could be a number of things. I would say a decent relative humidity woud be 40-80%. Sounds like a broad range, but kings are pretty tough snakes, and will adapt to variable conditions. If you think he's too dry, mist his cage once a week or so. A desert environment doesn't provide much humidity anyway. Good luck.

:Well, i've looked. I've read, and there is all kinds of information about heating, housing, and bedding. But nothing about humidity. I have a young desert king snake, and he is constantly sleeping in his watter dish. This made me wonder if the house, and his tank is too dry. Anyone know what a "prefered" humidity level for these snakes is???
