In my exsperience i would say No. I have seen snapping turtles to gether too but just to be on the safe side i would say no keep then seperate. They are territorial so its up to you. What are you putting them in. I would make sure that you had enought room that they just dont see eachother that offten if you put them to gether. all in all its up to you but like i said to be safe i would not. Look at you turtles and then think about your turltes with a leg or arm missing. I have see pics of a Snapping turtle biting the head off of a Res.

:So I should not keep more then 1 snapper per tank? Or just not with other turtle species?

:In a local reptile zoo over here they keep 3 commen snappers (20")together and they seem alright...
