No question is stupid!
though if you are reading advise on forums with experienced snake owners i would head their advice. having two different species of snakes in the same enclosure could be problematic, especially if they need space from one another and do not have enough of that.
Snakes are independent from birth so they do not get lonley, and they do not feel sad not being around other snakes.
they do not have a pack mentality like dogs or humans. So please, do not worry about your snakes mental health with companions. just be sure your animal’s enclosures are big enough for them with plenty of places to hide, and soak, and explore! they will be much more fulfilled that way.
hope that helps!
Ok I logged on tumblr just for a moment:
NEVER EVER EVER house two snakes together (unless they’re breeding) especially two different species.
It’s very stressful for them.
Garter snakes and corn snakes can each live happily in 20g long tanks, I would highly suggest you purchase one for each.
Again, if you want what’s best for your animal, house them separately.
This weekend I will be mothing and nature-walking all weekend. This blog will be updated ideally on Monday!
Have a good Weekend~
