    When I was seven years old (5 decades ago), my first pet snake was an Eastern "Chain" Kingsnake. As was customary then (a time when frozen/thawed feeders were unheard of), I kept it in a simple 20-gallon aquarium. The aluminum lid was held down with a beautiful 14-pound rock that I found somewhere in my travels around the mid-west. At that point, the snake was not too big, so I thought it was secure, but one morning I woke up to find that my pet snake was not in the cage because it had been strong enough to push on one corner of the lid and get it to buckle just enough to be able to slither away.

    My kingsnake was nowhere to be found for a few days, but one morning I heard my mother calling my name. I ran downstairs to her bedroom, and curled up there in her fluffy bathroom slipper was the shiny black snake with a pretty chain pattern that I'd been searching for. My mother was very cool about it--and no, she did not step on it!

    P.S. I modified the enclosure and having learned my lesson, never had another escapee again. Have a safe New Year's Eve, everybody!
