Remember...

all snakes are prone to eating other snakes. I have seen cannibalism in Thamnophis. What exactly are the benifits of keeping them together? Personally I only would think it could cause stress, potentially aid in the spread of disease, and could transmit parasites between specimens, not to mention the risks of cannibalism. I am sure some people do it and never have a problem. But do the pros really outweigh the cons? Why not just keep seperate tanks for each species...that way there will be no risks...Andy
