    Ever had your snake escape? Where did it go?

    or where are there favorite spots?

    I got a striped coastal Hatching

    And after my friends close encounter with losing his, I'd like to already map out my plan

    I caught mine twisted around the inner workings of my fold out catch when i let him roam

    And then he proceeded to become a chrismas decoration

    They are beautiful, there is just something about the way they look, move and act that is just awe inspiring

    How ridiculous is it taking all of your pillows off and trying to get them!! I have a huge L shaped lounge, I'm guessing would sit at least 9 people! I'm so glad I got him quickly or he would have probably been lost for a while:shock:

    I went to sleep watching television with my girl wrapped around my shoulders 1 night last year and when i woke up she was gone, took me 6 hours to find her but she had not gone far, she had slipped inside my recliner and was entwined around the scissor action for the back of the recliner, seeing as how the recliner was near new i did not feel like copping my wife's wrath for cutting a hole in it so it then took me a further 4 hours to coax her out with a chicken neck, i don't get too comfortable on the lounge with her anymore just in case.

    My spotted got out a few times due to my dad (And sometimes me...) not closing the enclosure properly :evil:
    She hid first in a wicker chair which I had to cut open because she got right in the little tube of the leg *sigh* MUm wasn't too happy when she came open to the chair with 3 legs....and one completely decapitated :p
    The second time she slid out my room and into the lounge room where the rats were!!!! Poor girl got a hiding from my big male :( Got a bit mad at dad that night when I came home from camp but oh well, he did everything he could and got all her cuts healed up! Bless his heart for that :)
    Other times she just climbs all over my soft toys near the enclosures :D

    My Bredli and jungle's enclosures have locks so they have never got out. My spotted is in a click clack.

    Well i did find one of my 8 ft diamonds 300 m up the road 6 mths after she escaped out of the avairy while I was overseas. Got the call and there she was terrorising the poor neighbours. Never found one of my red bellies though. Another redbelly escaped and I found it under another enclosure, and I thought stuff it, I'll get it when I get back from the surf, and then I couldn't find it, My young fella found it had climbed up to the top of some enclosures and was hanging up there 2 m off the ground. Then there was the day when I had a 9 ft diamond out sunning in the vege garden and I forgot she was there and went shopping with my missus when we got the call from my daughter that she was in the snake shed climbing over everything smashing stuff. By the time we got back she was curled up asleep on the incubator.
    Oh yeah and there was one time a 7ft coastal I owned lived in the wall my truck for a week (it got out of a bag). My missus got in the truck to reverse it out of the garage and when she turned back from looking over her shoulder its head was inches from her face. It was curled up on the dash and had stretched out to her while she was backing the troopy out.

    Don't vens have to be in a secure enclosure? Makes me feel a bit anxious knowing how carefree your attitude is about your escaping red belly blacks.:|
