    So, I have a reticulated python and my boyfriend has a monitor lizard. They're both adults, and I like taking the retic out of the tank frequently. He also lets the monitor run around on the floor. Now, if ever these two were to meet, what can I expect? Or should I just expect the worst and keep them far apart? I'd like to know the most likely outcome, and can't find any viable information anywhere. I know that monitors will eat baby retics, but what about when they're both adults?

    Retics have been known to eat large reptiles so it could actually consider the monitor prey but also the monitor could consider it a threat and do some serious damage to the snake while trying to defend its self. It is not a good idea I wouldn't try it.

    No play date for those two,...unless you like disasters!

    Keep them far, far, far away from each other.

    It's not worth the risk, I would ensure that you only have one out at a time.
