 Keep two rat snakes together?

Hi I recently was given two rat snakes ,as of now they are in separate tanks. I have seen alot of conflicting answers. I have other snakes but i’ve never had rats. I have kept 2 ball pythons and a red-tailed boa together for ten years (males at that) and never had any problem they dont get fed in the tank. They are the same size ,though I don’t know thier genders (i hope to find out this weekend though).
I can keep them separate i asking because now i have snakes on all available surfaces😓.
Any information is welcome.


Btw I have 2 carpet pythons , a hog nose , and milk snake. The ball pythons and boa are with my parents.

I house several corns together... and bull snakes also. But never the kings ...lol

I keep my boa separate from the retic... and the kitten away from all of them.

wish I had a rat snake or 2 .... good luck

Same answer as always. NO! Only for 1 reason only. BREEDING. You can transmit diseases, feeding problems and other issues. Snakes are solitary animals. They basically only ever come together in the wild to breed and snakes will congregate in a den during hibernation.
So please NO, NO, NO on keeping together.
