    iphone photos 072.jpg I've got a runaway
    my NEW diamond/carpet X (so I'm told)
    s/he's about 45cm and only thick as a finger
    had him 14 days now took him out for his 1st feeding didn't eat so I left him in his feeding tub over night with the food
    got up dis morning and check still not eaten ...... not there... ***
    last seen about 9pm last night, checked 8am.

    Ive read a bunch on the forums but feel posting is doing somthing when I cant think of anything else to do.

    rock hide and heat cord set in corner.
    food in it.
    hot water bottle in other corner. (no other heat sorce to use i can think of would a lava lamp be any good)
    flour over door way
    not taping dont wanna hurt him
    plastic bags under door so i can hear if hes trying to get out


    Listen up Lady's and gentlemen, Our fugitive has been on the run for 90 minutes, The average foot speed over uneven ground barring injury is 4 miles a hour that gives us a radius of 6 miles.

    You've done all you can by the sounds of it...cross your fingers and be more careful next time.

    Good luck.

    Good luck hun! Hope you find him soon!! The other thing i have read on these forums is look in places that radiate warmth like the tv, dvd, vcr etc, fridge, freezer. anything that is plugged in all the time.

    going CSI on this place
    only thing is he's so small and there are so many cracks and knot holes on the floors here
    so easy to get out of the house
    best hope still in the bed room

    Little hatchies are the easiest to escape and find goodluck they also like dark places Ive found so look high and low or if he/she cant get out of the house you will find your snake

    my spotted has escaped numerous times from my lousy effort to ensure the doors are properly shut lol and every time he sits curled up behind the enclosure... You will find him its important to look in the places that you least expect to find him...
