I had a similiar experience. When i was young and I had no sense, i took a wiz on an eletric fense. Just kidding, but when i was younger my snakes escaped all the time. That was in the days of a book for a lid. I am proud to say my one and only cali. kingsnake has never escaped in the 7 1/2 years i have had it. Back to my story, I had 2 baby water snakes in a small tank. One day the larger one, maybe 12-14", escaped. This was in the fall. No matter where I looked i couldn;t find that stupid snake. The whole winter went by without a sight of him. The next spring my dad was rerewater-proofing our basement and digging a big hole along the back wall to do it. My grandma was visiting from Fl. and came running into my room telling me that they found a snake outside. My yard has never ever had a wild snake in it since i have been around, and I was confused as to what it could have been. I ran outside to find a very dirty and thin watersnake sitting on top of the hole sunning himself. He came out with a blister that eventually made his tail fall off, but he was fine for the remainder of the time i kept him till i released him back to his origianl stream. My basement is heated and I have no clue how he did it but he did. It was a very interesting ordeal at the least.
