They can and possibly will eat each other. These snakes have even been seen when hungry to start at their own tail and try to eat themselves, becoming confused when they realize they can not go any further. Actually, any snake has the capability of eating another snake...they are all the perfect shape for eating other snakes which fit perfectly into the body cavity. And cannibalism does happen, even in fat, healthy, and well fed snakes. I would say it is best to keep them apart...because unless they are in breeding mode the possibility is always there. I am sure some people DO in fact keep their snakes together, and that they DO have success with it, but I would not chance it personally. Andy
