Is it possible to keep two corns together? we have one thats 20wks old, i know you would need to seperate at feeding time but would they attack each other for another reason?

thanks

Generally most keepers advise against keeping 2 snakes together although there are people on this forum who successfully do keep them together.

I was told by the breeder of mine that 2 males would fight, a male and female would mate, but I could keep 2 females together as long as they were separated at feeding time to prevent any accidents.

I've never done it myself though as, so far, I've never had 2 females!

id say 100% no at the age your corns are...


this is one of the reasons a friend and myself fell out recently..

he was looking after my snake and he co-habited it with a hatchling... i was furious... he did it without telling me and my older snake ( about a yearling) actually escaped... stil never got him back :(

i know as fully grown adults opinions do dilute slightly and some people say its fine...

i think however id err on the side of boring old caution and keep seperate

I have four corn snakes in two separate vivs. One pair are male and female and the other pair are females. They are all only a couple of months old and I separate them at feeding time.

The male female pair will breed, if the female is too young, this can result in the female becoming egg bound which can cause her death

as claire says, this is far from ideal..

corns have been known to mate at ages younger than a year.. its advisable to keep young snakes alone
