    Still no luck? My spotted got out at my mums when i was getting ready to bring her home! Flipped out thinking of your thread and was so worried about not finding her.. Cheeky little thing was behind the lounge.. How she got out of the box is beyond me though!

    no luck guys :(
    the house was empty and i didnt find it anywhere
    i looked in everything, everything we chucked out and no luck :(
    i think it could be in the walls because it can get in there by going behind the dishwasher
    so just keeping you guys up to date

    let the real estate know , so long as they knew you had it in the first place , they might be able to give the new tenants a heads up and let them know its in no way dangerous and if they do find it not to freak out and and maybe give them a phone number to reach you on if it does happen to show up, are you moving far away or is it close by , you may get him back still

    if you own the house that will definitely help , just tell the new tenants to call you if they ever see a snake not to try and get it for you as it could be anything but to call you and maybe keep an eye on it until you get there , theres still hope

    I reckon that'll help a lot - your tenants (hopefully!) won't want to get on their landlord's bad side! :D

    (Also, good luck, and really sorry it hasn't turned up :((( )

    Good for you! ;)

    And the best of luck w/ your new addition.


    P.S.
    Funny cause my boy left the glass opened the other day and when I went back a couple of hours later our Woma was gone!
    Womas are wonderers and like to explore around - everywhere actualy, so I sort of knew he could not have been far.

    I panic and In the heat of the moment, I couldn't think straight and read this thread back to front to get ideas where to look (so I sure do understand your feelings then)

    I found it soon after, it was hiding behind a book case, some 1.5 meters away, all scared/frighten in an 'S' position, the poor thing. He was more than happy to be back in his hide.

    No need to mention I lock the glass doors ever since. Lesson learnt.

    Mate, I cried reading this thread :'( I have a little spottie and I would die if I lost her. I lost one of my mates due to an unknown problem. I had him for 2 wks but he couldn't digest his food :'(. Vets don't know what happened, neither did the breeder. I really, really, really hope your tenants give you a call saying, "Hey! We have your python!"
    Congrats on MJ (My brother tried to name my spottie that! He is a MJ FREAK!)
    I still really want you to find your other little guy....best of luck :) (And yes, there is always hope!)

    Good News Guys :D the snake has been spotted at my old house, the new tanants had seen the snake on top of there fridge they were scared tht it was poisonous so they told the news agents and they told us, unlucky thhat i could not get there in time as it went back up in the roof, but when they see it again they will give me a call and i will be heading down there straight away. it may not be the same snake as it was 5-6 months ago as he will be hungry and very angry. but ill be very happy when i get my snake back :)

    Wow !!! Thats great news !! I bet you feel good knowing he is alive, i hope he comes down soon :)
     
  18. It probably won't be hungry because it's been out in the cold for months, and why would it be angry? Snakes don't have that kind of emotion, and it's probably quite happy to have escaped its enclosure for so long.

    He means that she/he will be snappy. If my snake hasn't been out for a week or two she gets snappier. but they also come down fairly fast.
     
  20. Snappy means defensive, not angry. I remove quite a few wild pythons off the road during summer up here, and very few of them attempt to bite. They don't get handled, ever, unless they're being moved to safety in the bush.
