    I'm the happiest person in the world ATM. After 3 weeks of not sleeping to see if I can find my missing Stimson. He turned up without me actualy trying to find him. As I was going to get my oil out of my hatchback boot. I just out of curiosity decided to lift the carpet out and look at my spare wheel. What did I find my missing Stimson. He is back home safe and sound. I also had a good sleep finally.

    Well I was getting the house fumigated. So I removed them from there enclosure as I didn't want anything happening to them. So obviously the pillow case I had him in had a hole. I went to my mims for a couple of hours as the pest control guy said we had to leave the house. So that's how he ended up in my car.

    Congrats! It's so stressful when you don't know if they're ok or not.

    Sorry to hear that crystal... :(

    A hatchy of mine was lost one morning, and after getting home from work early to pull the room completely apart (including pulling a tallboy apart and emptying a storage cupboard full of awkward shaped baby things.) I still couldn't find it. It was going to be a cold night as well, so I decided to put 2 pythons together and leave an open enclosure with the heat still on and it's hide so hopefully it would try to find warmth and go in there. I woke up at 5 in the morning and thought I'd get up and go check. as soon as I walked into the room I saw it sitting on top of a three high stack of enclosures! aaaaaaahhhh relief. :D
    To this day I still have no idea how it got up there and I checked and re-checked everything around and on top of this stack. It just goes to show that snakes really can climb magical thin-air highways that don't exist.

    Ohh Whisper's enclosure wasn't closed properly about 3 months ago :( I pulled the whole house apart many times, I have a horrible feeling she got outside .... All I hope is she is happy :) I still look out for her though :)

    . if you no it escaped in the house at least I wouldn't give a hope. I think you will find it one day.

    That's great news. You are so lucky you found him and lucky he wasn't cooked.
