: Someone just gave me a yellow rat snake and i'm wondering if i can keep in in the same tank (20 gallon) as my red coachwhip.Both snakes are around 32 inches with the rat snake being thicker.And of course they would be fed seperatly.
: I would rather do this than keep the rat snake in the plastic shoe box that its currently in.

Coachwhips are known to eat snakes. It seems unlikely to me that a coachwhip could (or would try to) eat a snake as long as it is, but... I wouldn't try it. Also, given that coachwhips are somewhat nervous snakes to begin with, I doubt that yours would take well to be housed with another snake, stress-wise. My advice: just bite the bullet and buy another cage!
