    So I have two corn snake (Male and Female) They live in the same tank and have since they were hatchlings. Recently while cleaning their cage I noticed a strange patch of what looked like blood. While playing with the female I noticed a cou[le strange reddish dots.
    Both of them are very docile and behave well with me, I'm wondering if they're hurting each other or what might be happening.

    No one can tell you for sure. They could well have attacked each other over resources or perhaps something else. Tbh cohabiting is always a risk and it takes skil to do it successfully. It’s not something I would attempt.

    Is one larger than the other? Are you prepared to handle eggs when they lay? Keeping a male and female together will most likely result in the mating.

    I would separate them if I’m being honest. It will take away the risk of them hurting each other and if there is something going on with one of them, then you can isolate it to the one snake.
