It is fine and can be fun, if and only if:

1) All community rosy boas are well established, meaning:
- calm not stressed
- eating like lions
- not prone to health problems

2) None of the community boas have had any history of illness including regurg, respiratory infection, diarrhea, mites, etc.

3) Must be fed in separate containers and remain separated for up to one hour after. This tends to make community housing a real pain as feeding separately leads to other problems (leaving them out to long while doing something else or forgetting to put back). Put them back to quick, and WHACK, another rosys smell mouse scent on a cagemate strikes and contricts, even to the death.

Given the headaches and risks, most of us avoid community housing, but it can provide for more crawl space and add to viewing pleasure.
