Escape

Post  gatsu7 on Mon Feb 14, 2011 3:10 pm

Well, I had my first escape sometime between Wednesday and Sunday of last week. My prairie kingsnake somehow got out of her cage, even though the screen top was still clamped firmly in place. I don't know how she did it or where she is now. I have a feeling that she is long gone because we found a small hole at the base of the wall, and there are many small holes through the bricks on the outside. Hopefully she will turn up again, but I'm not going to hold my breath. Honestly, the 2 wild-cought kingsnakes that I have, this one included, have been nothing but trouble. Neither of them are reliable eaters and they are not very sociable. I'm going to stick to captive born snakes from now on, and probably steer clear of kingsnakes altogether.

Id carefully search through/behind everything quick and you'll prob find em where you least expect it. LOL I say quickly because right now a nice warm herp room is much better than the cold outside but temps are going up outside this week. Later in the week more likely to be outside. Right now I'd expect the snake to still be somewhere in the house. Hope you find him/her!

I'm glad that it was a native, wild-caught snake, instead of something else. Temperatures are like Spring outside right now, so I'm not so sure she is still in the house. We have torn the place apart looking for her.

Michael,
Man, I'm sorry to hear that.
I hope you find her, but like you said, you'll be lucky if you do.
Chances are always much better if the escape is discovered immediately
and with those exit holes, the chances are good she's gone.
I'm sure you have, but just in case, have you checked under everything that produces heat ?

Nope. She's probably long gone by now. She knows how to survive out there, so hopefully she is okay. She was found in an apartment complex before I got her.
