I am pretty sure we have two escaped ball pythons somewhere in our house. I say pretty sure, because my daughter told me about the one being missing,
but then she bought another one... and I haven’t seen it for a couple of months... and she hasn’t bought any rats to feed it for that amount of
It's a club everyone joins at some point, I guess. I did expect an escape at some point, but I figured a year or two, not next season, lol
Anyway, to update on this -- she's still loose. And DEFINITELY in the bedroom and hiding somewhere
in there we cannot find. Kid did a good job
building lure traps all over her room (including putting out her bathing dish, snake takes a regular quick dip)
She's keen enough to wait until the kid falls asleep or leaves the room before she runs out for a drink or bath. We've been finding slither marks on
the plastic bag noise spots we laid out, a wet bathing dish exterior & water trails on the towel under the bathing dish to different directions each
We did put out a pinky, but she didn't fall for it.
Tonight, the Battle of Wits begins anew.
This would be so much easier if she was a full-grown adult, an escaped 4-5 foot long snake would be soooooo much easier to deal with than a damn foot
and a half long skinny little smart-ass baby danger noodle.
