    no it wouldn't be alright. the stress alone would kill them. snakes are solitaire creatures and only come together at breeding time or the mishap of just being in the same area.

    I can't stand when this question is asked over and over and over. Adam is right. The snakes will compete for warm or cool spots in the enclosure and sometimes one will eat or kill the other.

    And Tico, try looking around the forum before asking a question because there are a million threads that have addressed this issue in the same way it just has been. Save us the annoyance please :)

    It's annoying, but i'd rather have to answer the same question over and over than have someone not understand proper care.

    true?

    i agree, this is a forum and it is for posting questions, especially ones that need quick answers, its not a research web page.

    Stress is definitly a major concern when it comes to snakes.

    It's a matter of respect and trying to give Axe a hand. If we limited the number of threads with this same question perhaps the site wouldn't cost so much to uphold.

    But I do agree about having the person know than not ask. However I don't think it would kill someone to take a quick peek around.
