Sad in NY

I was trying to get my breeding stock together yesterday by buying 5 50% het for albino Ball pythons. I live in NYC and the guy that I was buying them from lives in Mass. After 4 States and about three hours I got my babies. Me and the breeder looked them over and I paid and went on my way. When I got home I looked at the plastic bag where my snakes were and saw that one of then had goteen out of his temp plastic home and was now in the bag upon further inspection I found that a second snake had gotten out but this one was MIA. My friend and I tried in vain to get the snake back. There are just too many places where it could have gone. I wouldnt have been so worried if the weather wasnt so cold. If it were summer she would just pop out when she was ready but being that last night it got to 40 degress I dought that she could have survived. The moral of this story is simple...... Snakes LIVE for the chance of escape. Even a snake that is resting will know when there is just the smallest hint of freedom. Try it sometime open the lid of your precious snke and just watch him. Give him about 5 minutes and watch as he changes from your calm pet to a wild animal. DONT underestimate their power to open things and Never think they are too calm to escape cause you cant get calmer than a Ball python. Keep them secure cause it hurts sooooo much to lose them.......
