my baby boa got out twice while i lived in my fiances basement ansd the first time she came back and crawled onto the dresser and was sitting near another snake cage using its heater this was about 4 mo after she had escaped. the 2nd time she got out we were getting ready to move so i put out a sticky paper that is safe for snakes you just put vegi oil on it to get the snake off and we caught her in a few weeks that time she was again back in my room though

They normally do not go far from there cage normally they will be in the same room and close to where there cage is. Look everywhere around where the cage/room is dont leave anything out the spot you miss could be where it is hiding.

I wouldn’t worry about to much. My kingsnake got lost for seven months, and we found her in our fishtank. We have never had a mouse problem since! Ninja Snake

I was just going to suggest to check around the fridge or stove as they tend to be warm. I too have houdini cornsnakes, and the Royal python I am caring for got out of its tank during the fire it went through before I got it, and was found hiding in the bottom of a closet. It tried to escape the smoke.

If you try to feed it, you can cut a hole in a cardboard box thats the same girth or just slightly smaller than the prey item but big enough for the snake to get into, (assuming you feed frozen thawed here) with the box over the heating pad so it stays warm. (Of course if it doesn eat overnight, you will have to throw away the food...cause eeeeew itll go bad fast) When the snake eats the food, it wont be able to get back out, as the food + the mass of the snake = larger than the hole.

Good luck. Dont Panic. More than likely it will show up in some warm spot or dark corner.

I agree with the others... look to places that are warm and dark, under the fridge, behind the tank even. She wont have gone far. Make it easy for her to get back into her tank, that’s somewhere she’s knows is warm and feels safe check under carpets/rugs too. My friend found her escaped King snake under the carpet under the sofa. she pulled the sofa out to hoover under there and wondered what the lump in the carpet was lol.

I also wouldn’t worry much. I have had three escapes and they always turn up, the only bad part is my wife was upset and I didn’t here the end of it until they showed up. mine were gone any were from 2 days to 6 weeks. They will always turn up. and usually the craziest places.
but check small crevices that are warm and dark? sometimes moist. I was once told to moisten a towel with warm water and put it in a crevice near were she escaped. The theory was Valid but tried this for three consecutive nights on one escapee, didn’t work. ended up just waiting it out.
