    Missing Snake!

    Does anyone have any advice regarding escaped snakes? My hatchling Stimsons has somehow managed to escape his enclosure (I’m honestly at a loss as to how other than I mustn’t have put the lid on properly).

I know people have told me to not feed him for days or weeks longer if he's being reluctant. But he's still very young and they can only go without food for 2-4 weeks this young. I've...
