Just like all animals, snakes have personalities. Some bite, most don't. When I chose him, I handled him first, just to be sure he's got a nice, quiet personality. If he were to bite me, it would either be because I aggravated him somehow, or because he thought I was food. (I've already resigned myself to being bit by this boy, as Kingsnakes are notorious eaters, and often try to eat anything that moves. Sometimes they get so excited they try to eat themselves...) Either way, it's not his fault.
And he'll be fed pinkies, or baby mice, for a couple of months, then moved on to the next stage of baby mice. Eventually he'll eat a full-grown mouse.
And Yeah, SK, I'll change that now ^_^ I'm still debating the name, though. I like Happi, and then... then I don't. I'm a person who LOVES unique names, so this is... not working well with that side of me XD
