Emys orbicularis and Pseudopus apodus, Bulgaria, June 2017. They aren't often found together.

Depends on what you mean by "together". A pond with E. orbicularis and a nearby field full of P. apodus,
within cca. 100 m, is that "together" enough or not? (The island of Pag, Croatia, at the southern outskirts
of Stara Novalja.)

The distinction made by Berislav is very correct.
We must define the meaning of the word "together".
If this means "casually photographed together in the same picture" (which is our case) without any type of interaction or finality between the two (or more) animals, it's a case. It can be rare or common to find such type of pictures, but there is no other meaning inside the picture, except the fact of a lucky photographer and/or a relative abundance of both species, as it's the case of the pond in Pag.
If "together" means that the two animals are actually interacting (male and female Malpolon, a Natrix with a frog, a lion eating or on the opposite caressing an antelope), this fact (besides the luck of the photographer) has another type of meaning! :lol:

P.s. Paradoxically, the same value of an "interaction" could have a "not interacting proximity" of two species which are normally predator and prey. For example if we photograph a whipsnake basking side by side with a green lizard...

Regarding "a Natrix with a frog", in this particular case it remained unclear (at least to me) who
eats whom... or could do it... They just ignored each other. A wise decision, I would say.

The pond Trnovica on the island of Krk, August 2009. P. ridibundus mostly huge, snakes small... at least then.
