I have a large Corn Snake, about 5.5 to six feet long and a Greyband Kingsnake, about 3 feet long. &nbsp;Can these snakes be kept togather? &nbsp;Courious minds are inquiring. &nbsp;<img src="" border="0" valign="absmiddle" alt=''>

Thanks Mike Blackston

If I am not mistaken, Kingsnakes are cannibals. They eat other snakes for dinner.

I wouldn't recommend putting them together.

I understand that, but in this case, I have two grown snakes and the prey item is twice as long as the preditor. &nbsp;This is not something I would normally do, just courious about the possibility.

Thanks, MIke Blackston

It may very well be the case that the greyband would try anyway, and both snakes would die of suffocation. &nbsp;However, even if the greyband never did try to eat the corn, it would undoubtedly stress them BOTH to the point of causing health problems. &nbsp;A lion cub isn't going to eat a wilderbeast, but the smell of &quot;lion&quot; is enough to send the whole herd into a panic. &nbsp;The same would be true for your snakes, I would think.

Just keep them separately, and they'll both be better for it.

Thanks Darin

That is what I was looking for. &nbsp;I have plenty of cage space, but I am always looking for species interaction info. &nbsp;I know I tried to breed a CalKing to a Ruthvin female, and the male CalKing's appitite was not of the sexual nature. &nbsp;Had to intervine on that one.

Thanks, Mike Blackston
