 Two snakes, separate tanks, one room...in a Mexican stand-off.

My wife and I have had a male ball python for a while now. He’s an adult, probably about 10 years old and he’s very friendly. We keep him in the bedroom, away from the kitties. We just recently got a 7 foot female boa...not exactly sure of the sub-species...maybe red-tail, BCI...not sure quite yet. Obviously, they’re in separate enclosures...the Ball is in a 40 and the Boa is in a 150 but the two enclosures are roughly 6 feet apart and facing each other. They seem to be staring each other down and I wanted to make sure that this isn’t causing any stress for them...maybe they’re just curious??? If someone has some insight on this, it would be very helpful and we could re-arrange the bedroom to make it better for them. Thanks :)

Thanks, takahiro111...I wasn’t too terribly worried about it but just wanted to be sure. I definitely don’t need an angry or stressed 7 foot Boa, lol.

Cheers
