Yup. I agree with what Ed said, and would also like to add a few things. Those animals are not natural to eachother, hence they may stress the other out, or worse yet, fight and injure/kill eachother. It is not normal for these animals to see eachother, any number of things can come as a result. Even mixing species from the same geographic location can be disasterous, since it can be very difficult to provide a large enough enclosure to simulate their natural environment. Many species of lizard and all species of snake are solitary animals, and only come together naturally for breeding. For the most part, it is best to disregard pet store examples, or listen to pet store advice, most of the time they don't have the slightest idea what they are doing/talking about
