Can I go off topic and talk about a non-snake??

We lost a very young dragon once:

She just vanished from one minute to the next. We searched and we searched. Over the course of the next hour we became more and more concerned and started looking in increasingly obscure places. Eventually we saw the hole at the back of our computer where my husband had taken out the old video card. Although the opening was about 12 inches above the floor and seemed rather small for her to squeeze through we opened the computer case and there she was...fast asleep


although she did at least look a bit guilty when we found her


My best snake escapee story is finding my adult male ghost absolutely HUGE, lying next to the tub of thawing mice that had been placed out that morning for evening feeding. He had eaten about half the mice in there, and seemed to be just lying trying to make more room to finish them off. The tub was on top of a fridge, so I don't know how he got up there. A lot of snakes went hungry that evening!!

Lost my adult female motley corn in July 2002...found her 8 months later, in early March, lounging in some irises in my flowerbed adjacent to the house.

I had given up all hope. Just goes to show to never give up. =P

Adorable pictures, Skye!

I too lost my dragon for an entire day. After searching the common places first, I started for the obscure places next. Found him sound asleep inside my fish aquarium stand, curled up in an old fishbowl.

It has a 8 inch gap in the back of the wood stand for canister filters and whatnot, apparently he climbed in and made himself comfortable. =P
