Petco / multiple ball pythons in one enclosure

Auburn, ME, United States

I recently went into my local Petco in Auburn, ME to look at their reptiles. Upon closer inspection of the ball python enclosure, I found that there were at least 3 baby ball pythons being kept in the same tank! Ball pythons are highly solitary animals and I have no doubt that if they are forced to live with one another the weaker snake(s) will be eaten. Not to mention there was only one hide and the humidity was hovering around 20% when it should be 55-60% or higher.
