    Emergency

    I turned my back on my snake for all of 30 seconds and he got out of his enclosure. He's only about a foot long and he's pretty skinny. Any tips on how to lure him out?

    Forget about luring him out. I've never heard of that ever working.

    They are nervous in unfamiliar surroundings and the most important thing will be to HIDE.

    Move from the enclosure on out. Most likely he is within 10 feet. Could be down low, up high, crammed into the tiniest places. Look inside of drawers (inside, on hardware, etc) Look at every part of every piece of furniture, esp. the "insides" or underneath, on hidden ledges, etc. They get into far smaller spaces then you would ever think...

    Look for warm dark enclosed places, drawers, under the water heater, etc. set a "trap" of a hide box with a heat pad (regulated of course) and a food item if you have one. Also, if you dont find him tonight, sprinkle flour around on the ground and look for tracks in the morning - he will most likely be close to his enclosure, they dont usually want to wander far, they just want to find warm shelter. Good Luck!

    That reminds me, look under drawers, my guy loves to cram himself in the little space by the drawer-slides (he does this while i have him out and am watching, so i know he's safe) so remember to, if possible, look around the drawer before actually opening it.

    I found him. He managed to get about 10 foot off the ground and ended up on top of my cabinets. He's a sneaky little thing! Thank you guys so much for all the help! I think I learned my lesson. Lol
