Escaped Ackie Help.
Ok well i hadnt posted it yet, i was waiting to get good photos before i told everyone....but i got an ackie at the Penrith expo afew weeks ago. (Thanks Spongebob)
I loved it, he was so fun to watch and all.
He was set up in a tub in the garage, and i never knew a tub could look so good really.
But yes, today my brother noticed he hadnt been around for a few days. (Its kept at mums house and we are at dads so it was kind of lucky in a way he noticed). So he went all through and he wasnt there.
Well yeah worst thing, hes gone. It wouldnt be as bad if it was inside, but its in a garage! Its fairly big, but the door is mostly open. But im wondering what i can do. And if they can climb bricks etc?
Im really annoyed. I thought i had everything right, i couldnt immagion loosing it. So tomorrow im allowed to go to mums and im going to pull everything out, and there is allot of stuff so im just hoping hes at least hiding in something rather than ran away.
Sorry to hear dude. I'll be very surprised if you find it again. Pythons tend to hang around even for weeks at a time but I reckon a monitor would be gone instantly. I hope I'm wrong though...Knowledge - The one thing you can give away freely while still keeping for yourself
Hey I lost an ackie for A few days but it was inside my house. I found him clinging to the screen door. And yeh good luck finding him mate spewing if you don't just make sure you keep the door closed while moving everything. And even check inside of boxes and such.

Ill search through the garage, but i know that if hes not there he would of jujst gone across the road into the bush.Youtube: SydneyReptiles
Can you see how it got out? Tubs are more resistant to escape, so first thing I'd check is the tub again! Sounds like you had it set up nicely so go through everything in there again. I've had a hatchie 'go missing' only to find it tucked into a tiny little spot in a fake rock I didn't even know was there.
Unfortunately, if they get out they can cover a lot of ground. I've had a yearling escape when it figured out it could lift the top opening, wooden lid (impressive little bugger). After 4 hours and 2 rooms later, I found it in the back of a wardrobe.
I hope you find it, good luck.
Oh, and yes, they can climb bricks.

u could also try and make a simple trap and bait it for your ackie?
Take the day off mate. More chance of finding him/her then.

good luck with the search got my fingers crossed for youDoesn't expecting the unexpected make the unexpected.......expected
Mine hides under its water bowl. There is an area he wedges himself into and you wouldn't even know his there.
Make sure you turn everything over that you pull out of the tub in case it's wedged into a crevice.
