Best Locality For Pet Quality

Is there a go to CA King locality/variation that consistently has good pet quality? Calm, Nice to handle, Less nippy than others? I know this may be impossible to answer, but thought I would ask the experts. Experts only need reply! Just kidding, of course.

My experience with Cal kings was many years ago, and there are other more qualified people for this. But since no one else responded I'll give it a go.

Cal kings just seem to be very hungry. Mine never seemed to strike defensively after they were out of the hatchling phase. But they would pretty consistently see if they could eat my fingers, wrists, etc. Especially if I had been handling the other snakes (even other Cal kings). I took to using hand sanitizer between each animal to add some smell to cover the odor of the other snakes.

If you want a kingsnake that doesn't bite, try greeri or leonis. They almost never do. Cal kings, splendida, MX blacks will all try to take a bite every now and again.

Heck, most Cal kings I ever had would eat their own shadow if they could grab hold of it. I had to watch them like a hawk when trying to breed them.
