So you want to house 2 diff snakes together huh?

I just thought i would post this here instead of posting it multiple times in diff forums...

I hope you guys dont mind this is a link from a different forum, but i thought it should be posted due to how many people do actually keep these snakes together.. Feel free to move if needed..

Wow- thats really sad for the BP. The sheer mechanics of the boa actually doing that are kinda hard to believe, given their similar size. A lesson for all keepers, indeed.

Now there is actual physical proof as to why not to house two snakes together. That pic needs to be available for quick post.

Wow, hard to believe that the boa managed to get that Ball down in the first place...

Even harder to believe someone could have 2 gorgeous animals like that and be too cheap to buy a second rubbermaid...

Great post...yet another reason not to house snakes together (not to mention the diff. housing requirements), and still not one to keep them together ...

Thanks for sharing

You couldn't have posted those at a better time.

I got a call from the snake keeper at the Saskatchewan Science Center. They have a ball python which is not eating, and he wanted to ask me what to do. After a few minutes of asking how the ball python was set up, I asked if it lived with any other snake. It lives (until yesterday) with a big boa!

I'll likely send that link to them.

Wow thanks for sharing that with us! I can't beleive that boa managed to get the ball down his throat!!! Why would you even think of housing a python and a boa together??? Doesn't make sense to me. Too bad those snakes

That is just so sad. You'd think people would know better.
