: Last night I went to feed my Sinaloan Milksnake to discover he was no longer in the tank. I last saw him the night before so he could have been out of the tank for almost a day. My main worry is that (I live in an apartment) he may end up in one of the other apartments, I'm not sure if thats possible but I hope it doesn't happen. Its supposed to be about 5 degrees F tonight so I hope he stays somewhere warm.
: My wife and I have looked all over the place looking for him. I have placed several little hiding spots around the place hoping he is in one of them in the morning. Here is hoping for the best. I'm still amazed he got out, the lid was the snap on kind and was on tight, at least I thought it was.
: I have the little hides set up, if anyone else has any ideas of how to find a lost snake I would appreciate it.
ok, this is what you do, its almost fool proof. Take your heat lamp and clamp it somewhere close to the ground, maybe a meter away. We all know reptiles are cold blooded so they need heat. When its on its search for a basking spot it'll come across this spot. It'll sit there..giving itself away. Keep a look out for it. This should work nicely!
