    Decided to fluff up the soil in my enclosures today and found the milks had done some more excavations

    This area is normally covered by some flag stones

    Best part about today though is the moment i put the enclosure back together and them back in it they start this up :)

    ...................... Thank you. I used to have another male but she never got along with him. This guy shes sweet on.
    The only time they arent like two peas in a pod is after shes knocked up. He wants it and she aint given any lol. If he persists too much( and of course he does :) ) i toss him in a rack draw till she lays before allow him back home.

    Some more pics

    When they were done they were laying entwined in a way i wanted to get a pic of. I open the tank and ofcourse ended up startling the girl down a hole instead.

    ........................... Best way ive found to start is to over winter them together when young. That way they get acquainted with the minimum amount of risk. Toss two strange milks or kings together in lets say the mid-late summer you could very well end up with one fat snake lol.

    If your really interested in keeping your milks together, i recommend you do so after gaining some experience keeping pairs of another species together that do not have any natural ophiophagus tendencies. That way you can learn what the normal ins and outs are of snake interaction with out risking the terror of finding one trying to consume the other(for the most part).
