 Russian tortoise and fire skink

A pet store near me keeps a russian tortoise and fire skink together. Would this work in a habitat or are these not compatible.

Yes I wonder if that mix would survive in those conditions or eventually die.

Sorry I was a little confused.....but yeah they can’t live together because both require different care and I’m pretty sure someone will get eaten or bully the other as they reach maturity. Also you want them to stay healthy one can infect the other if its sick of some sort(RI,parasites,etc...)

As with most reptiles, they are technically dangerous to each other, they have different enzymes, and especially concerning water, they will start to "poison" the other one
