    Well said sir!
    Judge not lest ye be judged creates a cesspool. Judge others and prepare to be judged by them.
    Just know when to keep the verdict to yourself.

    I think the biggest problem I see is that they're being housed together. Snakes are not lightweight creatures. I can just imagine it deciding to bask on top of the "eddy's" pot and smooshing the plant. Even frogs (except for the smaller dartfrogs), have a tendency to tear up vivarium plants with their activity. The only animal terrarium I'd consider keeping a precious plant in would be for something light and unobtrusive, like a spider or other carnivorous insect.

    Hey all,

    After much anticipation here it is! Photos of my baby TC eddy, the big eddy I just recently got in, and my snake. Enjoy and feel free to let me know what you think

    P.S. The boa tank experieinces roughly a 15 degree day/night difference which is pretty good.

    The snake actually isn't too big of a problem. It's pretty much 100% aroboreal so he just chills in the canopy or the logs above, haven't had problems yet

    I would never risk housing any plant worth more than 30 dollars with a live animal. Period. If you must house it with the snake, could you set up a cube made out of plastic with a mesh top to protect the plant?

    It's been fine so far! I'll probably get a bigger tank soon so there's more room for him. I should be able to repot it if it gets knocked over right?

    I just find it surprising you're willing to risk an expensive plant like that. I wouldn't base anything off of "so-far". What if it gets upotted while you're gone? You'd have a dead plant for sure.
