I got lucky!

Got lucky today. I keep all my corn snakes in my garage and over many years I had 4 or 5 corns escape. Once they escape I never find them again.
About 2 weeks ago one of my favorites, a 10 month old lava sunkissed corn, was missing from his enclosure. I still can't figure out how he escaped. All past escapes I was able to determine that human (me) error caused the escape.
Once I realized he was gone I went through everything but couldn't find the little guy. I was really 😡. His colors were really starting to pop. And his growth really starting to take off. Figured I just lost a gem.
Two weeks later (today), I walked into my garage to my snake area to change out water bowls. Went to grab the 5 gallon bucket from under my snake work table and noticed movement in in the bucket. There he was, too small to climb out of the bucket. First thought that came to me was I left him in the bucket for two weeks. I use a 5 gallon bucket to hold the snakes while I spot clean their cages. But No, I used that bucket multiple times this week. The only explanation was he fell into the bucket for me to find....... LUCKY ME!
Needless to say I Moved him to a different enclosure! Boy was he thirsty and hungry too. He is now hydrated and with a full belly comfortably resting from his little scary adventure.
