why not add a croc as well:2thumb:
See this is why i'm beginning to hate this site, This guy asked a simple question and most of you either slated him or mocked him. I know it was a stupid question but he's obviously a beginner. This site needs to reform badly, a simple yes or no would have suited his question.

A simple 'no' would not educate, however a couple of links to posts on cohabiting may have been better along with a very definate no about not cohabiting ANYTHING without learning about it FIRST! : victory:
(I must admit, when I first saw it I ignored it as I considered it may be a-trolling)!

Yeah the man version. Its just if people aren't insulting beginners on this thread they're insulting them on another and it seems to be happening more frequently now.
i figured it was just some troll trying to get a rise out of the members by posting something like this and then watching all the shocked responses giggling away at the worry they've cause to well meaning people trying to help.

To the OP.......you should not keep them together. Each snake has different husbandry requirements and you won't be able to meet each snake's needs if they are housed together. With one growing considerably larger than the other the smaller one may not be able to thermoregulate properly which could cause health problems.

Much better to house them separately and keep them both happy and healthy.

You're right, they do need to know why, but they don't need to be mocked for their question, looking at jeffers and purple D specifically.

i kinda just read over it as well expecting it to be a troll thread, but then maybe im wrong to assume that ppl research before getting a new pet, king snakes are so named as they are like the king cobra, i.e they eat other snakes and then theres the whole usual argument for cohabiting that can be found by typing cohabiting into the search box if the king part isnt enough reason.
