You can put 2 adults in the same tank. It doesn't matter if its >male orfemale.

Hmmm, if you don't want the female to lay eggs that you have no intention of incubating it's best not to put a male in with her as male cornsnakes are notorious horndogs during the breeding season and she'll become gravid and why put her through the stress of pregnancy if you don't want baby snakes?

I heard that corns like about 12 years, so she may be a bit too old for pregnancy at 10yrs

My female corn of 10 years has made 2 clutches this year.

Of course the 'good news' is that corns don't typically eat each other, unless you feed them together and they ... the viv is big enough. I really think it's a myth that snakes want buddies. But I'm hardly an expert.

Never keep corns under a year old together, however! They have, and will eat each other. Emotion: sad Adults rarely do that unless one smells mouse on the other, but if kept well-fed and fed separately you should not have a problem with keeping two corns together.

I believe Cat (Clara) keeps grown males together but she'd have to confirm that.

I keep my males together, and during breeding season they will pester one another thinking the other is a female. Nothing happens though-just one runs away. Emotion: smile

Having done some personal research with several reptile viruses I'd certainly quarantine all reptiles before housing them together. It is not worth losing a beloved snake or lizard because you wanted another & didn't take appropriate precautions before housing them together. I quarantine all reptiles for at least 6 months to 1 year before introducing them to each other. I personally don't house animals together unless they're to be bred to prevent the spread of disease.

While corn snakes have been safely housed together I don't believe there's any benefit from doing so except to breed or to save space. Personally I'd rather invest in another vivarium than risk any possible viral infections. Viral infections are impossible to treat & some reptiles are asymptomatic carriers. They show no signs of disease but pass the virus onto other reptiles that come into contact with them. snake lady

seen 2 males kept together fine and imitate having sex

I keep 2 male corns together with a female corn X grey rat hybrid. They all get on fine. However, before the female was introduced, the males would get rather amourous with each other. The presence of the female seems to have stopped them from doing that, even though I've yet to have any eggs (the female has been in there about 18 months now).
: As you know I bought an adult corn snake yesterday. My question, after : finding how lovely these snakes are, is, can I out another corn in with her?
: If I can does it have to be male or female? Can I put a hatchling in or not?
: I only ask as the rescue I got her from had unrelated corns in with each : other and I would like to get another corn and I have a tank big enough for
: two.
: Ta.Thanks to everybody for answering this, taking everything into consideration I think I'll leave her on her own as I don't want to breed and the only way I could guarantee not bringing any disease into her viv would have been to buy the snake she was housed with in the rescue centre. We didn't do that so I'll be content with her and use a separate cage for anything else I get. Just ine more thing though, I know all snakes are different but are corns usually quite active busy creatures? Kellogg doesn't seem to have stopped exploring since we got her, she's always on the move.

My hoggie seems to die for days at a time, only exploring when she's hungry. I'm quite impressed by her activity but would this mean, as it does with my hoggie, that she's still hungry?
Thanks.

Good, PLEASE do not breed them. You already have a mutt female, breeding her down further muddies the bloodline and contributes to their decline. The argument can be made that we'll never run out of corn snakes, but it is as much the principle of the thing as it is the concept of cross-breeding.

Thanks for not breeding!

Probably the stress of a new home. My milksnakes are more active than my cornsnakes but both are frequently seen out & about exploring.
