House Burning

Postby mania » Thu Mar 29, 2007 12:48 am

Tonight I was sitting in the lounge and smelt smoke and realised that it was coming from the house next door. I then thought what if my house was to start burning down which reptiles species can I put with another species if i only had a few containers to use. Please could you help with what reptiles (that ill state at the bottom) can be put with each other in the same containers in case my house does every start to burn.
REPTILES:
Amazon tree boa, red tail boa, burmese python, corn snake, pueblan milksnake, checkard garter snake.

Thanks
Wayne

Red Tails and Burmese could go together, Cornsnake and Garter snake. The milksnake will have to go seperate and the amazon tree boas I would suggest the same.

I've had to do this once before and at that stage you just in such a panic I doubt you will even think of what goes where.

If the worst comes to the worst only the milksnake needs to be isolated and the others can all be thrown together. It depends on the size of the container and the size of the snakes. Putting a 4 metre burmese in with a 30 cm corn snake will not work because the one will crush the other. If they are of simlar size or the container is big enough for them to not have to lie on each other and it is an emergency just isolate the milksnake from the others.
It is easier to ask for forgiveness than permission.

Those who are afraid to ask are ashamed of learning.

ok thanks guys, that makes sense with the burmese and corns, lets hope it won't happen but just to be on the safe side. Bushbaby did you manage to save all your reptiles when it happened to you?

In the case of an emergency everything can go together except with king snakes and cobra. :lol:
Don’t kill it, if you are not planning to eat it.

I saved some, but lost quite a few.

I also lost quite a few afterwards from damage from the smoke :( Very sad indeed.
