So....turns out my Red Tailed Boa (6.5ft, 17lbs) decided to go up into my ceiling tiles early afternoon yesterday. We took apart the ceiling in the kitchen (where he used the cabinets to get up) but with the position of the layout it looks like the only possible escape from my ceiling is a small area (that he would be able to fir) that leads to what looks like either MY bathroom or my NEIGHBORS ceiling. With the positions of the counter and cabinets, we cant see directly into the area to see where it goes or if he is just chilling there. He hasn't eaten in about 3 to 4 weeks due to not wanting what we offered so we know he is hungry. We are putting old rat bedding or small breathable rat cage with a rat in it on my cabinets to help lure him out but I was wondering: 1. If there are any other suggestion to get him out. 2. How to prevent this from happening again. (he is free roam for over a year and this is first incident. Since he seems to like high warm places we thought about getting him a cat tree with either a heating pad or heat lamp) 3. Do i need to worry about health issues from the insulation or any bugs or things (house centipedes, spiders, etc)? Also, please no hateful comments about how "I am a bad parent for letting this happen" Things happen, hes a snake. I have had him for almost 4 years and have never had this problem with him before.
