    Hi all, i know its a stupid question and the answer is probably no but im getting a centralian carpet python (morelia bredli) soon and its a tall and large tank so i was wondering if i can keep two shinglebacks or a bearded dragon in there with the snake? if not then any other species i could keep with her. that she wont eat them

    Bredli's in the wild will eat other reptiles, as will most pythons. Unless you want to end up a very full Bredli and a very empty tank, I would say its a solid no.
    Also the two have different care requirements, lighting, food etc.
    As a general rule, reptiles shouldn't really be kept together unless breeding, of course some species are an exception, but I can't think of any off the top of my head as of now, a google search or thread on this forum should answer that.
    If you want both pythons and Lizards, you need separate tanks.
