Any ideas?

Don't give up! I've lost all three of mine once and found them all within 2 days!
Firstly, (quite obvious) Check EVERYTHING, I thought i'd looked everywhere, and was just about to give up when i found him in a box of twigs!! :? :lol:

They can get downstairs... Found another in the downstairs loo, on the door handle! :?
If you have rodents, check around there, or in an area you keep their belongings (bedding etc)
You can try getting a pinkie and moving around the floor with it (sounds stupid but it worked once for me! :lol:)
Check near any raditors, or anywhere it'll be warm...

Good Luck finding her!!
Hope you find her safe and well

Good to hear you found your snake. My corn snake escaped from his viv in my bedroom and luckily my wife spotted him downstairs next to the front door hiding behind curtain. He had been out all day as no one was in the house since that morning!!!

I lost my Pueblan about a year ago and haven't seen it since. I stripped the room it was in and I laid bottle traps with pinkies in it every where and still I haven't found him.

My house is about 600 years old so I don't have much chance with all those nooks and crannies, my only hope is that it wound some of that whattle and dorb and hid in it and hope that he shows himself one day, but the truth be known I think I lost the poor thing.

Came into my room one day to find half a corn snake sticking out of one of my exo terra tanks, it had tried to escape through one of the holes designed for wires to go through,. but had eaten the day before and the mouse in its stomach wouldnt let it get through the wire hole completely! lol

My corn escaped once..into a school science faculty with TEN labs! :yikes:
A million hiding places! We turned the place upside down, left pinkie bottle traps, flour, the works. No sign for 7 weeks, until I was clearing out a cupboard underneath her viv & out popped a little orange head!
She squeezed through the gap between the sliding glass doors & she STILL tests it to see if she'll fit (we've secured it tho...and shes toooo fat now!! :razz: )
