A couple years ago my California King snake escaped. I tried every thing to try and find him, my worry was that he got outside and I live in Canada and it was the middle of winter so I knew if he got outside he would die. I gave up searching after 2 months and feared that he got out side and was now dead. Another 4 months past and I didn't think that much of him anymore then one afternoon he just showed up on my bedroom floor alive and supprisenly healthy. He still lives today in a almost escape proof tank.
