    You bet I quadruple check all my locks and latches now. We joke now when he's poking around his enclosure that he's 'pining for the stove' like that one Monty Python sketch with the bird.

    Stoves must be a BP thing. When I upgraded my boas to 4í Vision cages, I put my ball in the larger of the reptile tanks...the one with the sliding latching lid that had been secure, so I thought. My boa had been in it for 2 years with no problem. Within 24 hours my ball had escaped. We were in that first apartment, and came home from work to an empty tank. I had visions of a loose snake that had slithered into a neighboring apartment showing up on the six o'clock news. We only had 500 square feet and we must have turned that place upside down. We finally found him under the stove, wound around some type of brace or bracket. My other half titled the stove back while I stuck my head and arms under it and unwound the snake. Everyone got locking cages after that.

    That would be an interesting explain to the cops, No officer I havenít been drinking just wrestling this snake!

    We'd torn the whole apartment apart looking. Fiance suspected he was in an appliance from the get go. I'd looked behind the drawer in the stove and didn't see anything, but when I cooked on the stovetop the next morning it must have drove him to the floor because when I looked again there he was! Of course I tried to grab him and he slipped right up into the side wall again. Little brat. We were both glad to have found him!

    Looking back, my cat kept peeking under the stove. I should have paid more attention.

    He just wanted a nice home cooked meal! My boy is pouting for the whole week. I fed him last night and he wouldnít even bite the rat. He stared me down raised his head and laid on top of the rat and set there staring at me then he wrapped it up and just kept staring at me. He finally ate the thing, heís just a brat...lol!
