OH MY GOD !!! IT BROKE LOOSE !!!

BABY EATING BOA ESCAPES...

IF YOU HAVE SNAKES, AND ESPECIALLY THE SMALLER SPIECIES, SOMEWHERE ALONG THE LINE, THEY ARE BOUND TO WANDER OFF, AS SOON AS THEY SEE A POSSIBILITY ! IF YOU LEFT A SMALL GAP IN THE TERRARIUM, IF THE SNAKES HEAD FITS, IT'S BODY WILL GO ALSO !!!! SO LET ME TELL YA ABOUT ZOE, WHO BROKE LOOSE IN A CAR FOR 6 WEEKS, THEN FIRSTLY 2 DAYS IN MY HOME, AND AFTER CAPTURING, BROKE LOOSE AGAIN, FOR 2 WEEKS !!!!! SO IT NOW IS STRESSED, REFUSES FOOD, AND IS VERY ANGRY !! BUT IN THE TERRARIUM AGAIN :-) ( AT 07-06-2002 )

IF YOU HAVE A SNAKE ON THE LOOSE,

1 ) CLOSE ALL DOORS  AND WINDOWS IN THE AREA,

2 ) CLOSE THE CURTAINS, OR BLOCKOUT THE SUN, EG DARKEN THE ROOM.

3 ) TAKE A  SMALL BOWL OF WARM ( 30 C ) WATER, PUT IT SOMEWHERE IN THE ROOM, IN A CASE, AND ADD 1 MICE, WITH A SEVERED HEAD. 

THE BRAINS MUST BE SMELLABLE, CAUSE SNAKES GO MAD WHEN THEY SMELL THAT. THE WARM WATER WILL SPREAD THE SENTENCE BETTER. THE BOX MUST BE CLOSED UP COMPLETELY, EXEPT FOR A SMALL HOLE, YOUR SNAKE CAN CRAWL TROUGH,  MAKE SURE THAT THE HOLE THE SNAKE MUST CRAWL THROUGH, TO GET INTO THE BOX, AND AT THE MOUSE, IS SMALL ENOUGH TO BLOCK THE SNAKE, WHEN IT HAS EATEN THE MOUSE AND THE SNAKE IS FATTER. THIS WORKS 100 % !!!

ZOE CAME TO THE BOX AFTER JUST 5 MINUTES ( MUST SAY THAT HE DID NOT HAD FOOD FOR A WHILE !! )

ESCAPED SNAKES WILL WONDER TO A WARM, DARK, CRAMPED AREA, WITH HIGH HUMIDITY. EG :

BEHIND, IN OR UNDER THE FRIDGE, STOVE, DISHWASHER, UNDERNEATH RUGS, IN CABINETS, UNDER CHAIRS, IN OR UNDER PLANTS, IN THE BOILERROOM ECT ECT.

USUALLY SNAKES DO NOT CLIMB STAIRS, BUT THEY CAN DO SO...

HERE IN HOLLAND TEMPERATURES USUALLY ARE TO COLD FOR ESCAPED SNAKES TO WONDER OUTSIDE...
