All snakes should be quarantined for 3-6+ months minimum. I agree with Trevor, snakes shouldn't be housed together IMHO except for breeding. In addition to all the associated health risks, and safety risks, another point is that if you did choose to house two oppositely sexed snakes together, they should both be very young, or both be sexually mature and in breeding condition. Males will breed earlier than females, and at one year of age, he may be willing to try to breed, and your female is just a could easily damage her irrepairably or worse yet, kill her.
