Change your screen name to DeadSnake if you don't wise up soon. There is a reason for all of the things you read on caresheets. The fact you don't provide a heat source is just stunning. Reptiles are ectotherms and need heat to regualte their temperature. When not provided with the proper temps, snakes cannot digect properly and ultimately...die. It may take a while but it WILL eventually happen. Unless your room temp is 85F. Also, I don't feed live because I have had one of my snakes injured by a mouse, and you should NEVER under any circumstances leave a live rodent in the cage with a snake. These are basic Herp Keeping 101 facts that you should know before getting a snake and keeping it in sub-par conditions. You seem proud of your crappy care, which I find VERY disturbing. Kingsnakes are hardy but that gives you no right to abuse them by knowingly giving them horrible conditions. Also, if you handle other herps before or after handling others, you run the risk of not only being bit, but transmitting parasites and or diseases that the reptiles may have. Most of this stuff is just common sense, which you seem to be lacking.
