In Reply to: lost carpet python posted by Ann on December 20, 2001 at 07:46:48:
: My 2 year old carpet python escaped and I have torn apart my room looking for her. I am at a loss as to where else to look. If by chance she managed to make it outdoors, does anyone know where she would most likely head? I live in Virginia Beach and the weather has been up and down, but definitely not summer warmth. Would this discourage her from cruising? Do snakes ALWAYS seek out warmth when they get cool? Any info would be greatly appreciated, I am ripping my hair out and my husband is not happy with me. Thank you.
There is a good chance that the animal is still around. Start with a pad of paper and pen. Write down were you have been. Begin with room were the snake is kept. work from the floor up in foot increments, jotting it down. If you have force water heaters on the floor. Open them up and look therw. Sometimes the copper tubing is shared with your neighbor. Which means there is a large enough hole for the carpet to slip through. If the animal recently ate it might bunkered down and waiting it out. Waking up in the middle of the night tip-toeing around with a flashlight, looking for it that way. The snake might not want to come out untill there is no stomping.
