being tempted with a tangerine honduran. Just need a bit of advice please. Already have a corn and want one of these.

1. same temperament as corns?
2. same temps and set up?
3. same feeding responses?
4. do they really musk you quite bad?sure there will be loads more questions to come.
thanks in advance.

You want temps abit higher than with corns, I keep my kings up to 33oC on hot side, cold side is room temp. I would expect feeding response to be abit more manic than your corn. My corns are all fairly gentle feeders, my kings are all mental feeders so get a pair of long tweezers.

Musking varies snake to snake. Everything else setup wise is the same as your corn.

Hondurensis rarely musk in comparasent to other sub-species. I find there more of a biter when hatchlings.

I keep my Hondurensis about 30 d.celcius, you have to bare in mind they naturally live in higher elevations then most north/Central American sub-species.
