    I was going to take William out to get some sun today.... and discovered that he was not in his cage. I checked everywhere. I have no idea how this happened, the only thought I have is that maybe I didn't put the lid on his cage tight enough the last time I took him out... which was the day before yesterday!

    I am so upset... But I know that he could still be in the room. Unfortunately, the back door, which is right by my room, has a space under it pleanty large enough fr him to get through. I am starting to freak out...

    Anyway, I've read a gazilion papers about how to hunt for escaped herps and I will do my best, but I could use some prayers...

    you have mine...best of luck. I have never lost a herp from an escape before, it must suck. Don't feel too guilty, i am sure he'll pop up somewhere.

    An idea is to tell your neighbours if you have not already, if they see a snake they'll know where who t call......and if i see him i'll let you know;)

    Put out a heat mat with a brained pink on it, this could help draw him out :)
    God luck finding him!

    Thanks guys.... I am trying really hard not to loose hope... If it were Billboa I wouldn't be quite so worried, but William is so tiny! Barely a foot long, and there are so many places to hide.... I would call my neighbors, but honestly they aren't the nicest of people, and I doubt they would notice something that small anyway.

    I will definitely put out the heat mat and food, as well as some water, as he is one of the thirstiest snakes I have ever met... Other than that, I have run out of options. I guess now it is just... wait... :(

    OH my goodness.... Couches are an absolute nightmare. Seriously. Whoever invented the couch should be shot. I live in a sort of studio under my parents, with two rooms and a bathroom. Actually it is more like a basement turned into a bedroom. Anyway, there are two couches down here, plus a recliner. THere are sssooooo many places to hide in these things! I have taken all the cushions off, stuck my fingers anywhere they will fit, turned them all upside down and practically crawled inside some of them with a flashlight. Nothing. THere are some things I just can't move too, like my water bed, though I am half tempted to empty it anyway.

    I am honestly starting to look hope. There is just so much room and he is so tiny! Plus there are some open places in the paneling... As I said, it is basically a basement. I really don't know what to do.

    Thank you for all your help everybody. I'll go on the hunt again tonight, but I am afraid to get my hopes up. I just lost a cat a few months ago too, so this is just killing me. For some reason, no matter how hard I try my animals don't stick around... I know they are happy, I do everything I can for them... but all it takes is one mistake!

    Good luck... a friend of mine lost a small baby ball python and found it by making her apartment REALLY cold, it made the electric bill ridiculous, but she put out a space heater in the bathroom tub with some food and it turned up in the laundry bin next to it a few days later. I like the cold and had to where a sweat shirt in her place, and it was during the heat of summer, so I can't imagine what the bill was, but she said it was worth it when he came back.

    Awww.... I wish I could do that... Unfortunately we don't have air conditioning, but I did set out a heater for the night time, and put a hide over part of it. Who knows...
