    Yes, the snake will continue to get out. Again, and again, and... oh crap, it's GONE.

    Better fix it up or your snake will get eaten or get lost.

    I had a stimmie pop the top on an exoterra tank. In the end I used a ratchet strap to stop her. Once they know they can get out they'll spend ages checking the spot over and over.
