We had a cornsnake escape on us when we lived in another house. I was in the next room and all of a sudden I hear my wife call me in that shrill emergency voice. I ran into the room to see the juvie corn wrapped around our cockatiel bird in it's cage. I hurridly unwrapped the juvie by the tail and the bird was fine, albeit a bit shaken up.
Before I met my wife, I had my ball python at my girlfriend's apt, and he decided to play houdini. Unfortunately she had to leave that weekend due to the lease being up. I always wondered what happened to that snake...and the new leasers who may have found that 4 foot long thang in their apt!
