    Not really sure I would cohab a hatchling with anything. If you have a larger snake already in there then there is a good risk of cannibalism.

    Hi Tarzan
    As they are not social animals , it is generally not recommended , but can be done successfully. Personally I would keep them in separate enclosures, but if you do I would keep a close eye on them to make sure one isn't being excluded from heat or shelter by a more dominant one. Good luck.
