Reptiles/lost snake


Hi my few month old baby amel baby corn snake has escaped ive torn up the house looking for him/her but no luck and ive also layed out pinkies for her but still nothing :( please help urgent!!!!

Hello Liam,

oh my, that is going to be hard to find her.
You can try putting down some flour in various parts of the floor in case she comes out you will be able to see a direction she has gone possibly.
How big is she?
How long has she been gone?
Be sure to look around cables for the computer, tv, etc where it is warm.

Let me know how things are going.

I can answer questions pertaining to health, UVB specifics, overall husbandry care & supplementation, analysis of blood test results, and behavioral problems & handling. I can answer questions pertaining to bearded dragons, leopard geckos, iguanas, uromastyx & ball pythons. I can answer adeno virus related questions in bearded dragons, & then specifically about the testing methods as well. I am beginning an Pogona Adeno Testing Society in 2008 which will help to begin to start some standardization within the bearded dragon colonies of the breeders who choose to test.


I have been working with bearded dragons for over 5 years now, as well as leopard geckos, too. I am currently doing rescues, as well. I hope to be able to educate people prior to them purchasing an exotic pet in order to avoid any health crisis with them.

I have a master's degree in sports medicine & physiology, & 1 year of vet tech schooling, & am currently working on a reptile certification through the Pet Industry Joint Advisory Council.
