Just a little encouragement for all those who lose a snake. First search the room! When you think you've looked everywhere, look again! Last night my pueblan milk escaped from a cheap tank with a screen lid. I tore the house apart and found nothing. As I was putting everything back I noticed that a mead 3 ring binder was unzipped about and inch and a half. I thought no way but I had looked every where else so I opened it, and there she was curled up around one of the rings. So never give up and look everywhere. Even those places that seem impossible.
