Dendroaspis angusticeps and Dispholidus typus

Hi experts

What is your take on keeping these two species together in a cage. Would it be advisable or not? Obviously if one has a big enough cage (say 1800L x 800W x 1500H). I know neither of these species are cannibalistic and they do occur together naturally so would there be any problems?

They do occur together yes but not in a confined space. So personaly I would not house them together.

What do you mean neither are cannibalistic?

Oh cr*p! I was not aware of that! None of the species descriptions I have read on the species indicated cannibalism Bushviper. I stand corrected! Thank you.,

End of discussion!
