You don`t say how big either of them is (small=?), but I don`t think it`s a good idea, even if the snapper were a baby. One of them (the RES) is likely to get hurt at some point. (And you should never introduce any turtle, even another RES, without quarantining it first (at least 90 days) to make sure it it doesn`t have anything contagious.)
