Here's a picture of my 8 foot Boa Constrictor in her new hiding spot. You see, while I was out for the evening she had figured out how to open her cage door. So, she went roaming.

When you come home to an empty Boa cage, you tend to panic. After about 10 minutes of frantic searching, I finally found her.

The struggle that ensued afterwards to remove her from the entertainment center, was rather comical. She's a STRONG animal and was not easy to remove. I should of filmed it.

I've heard horror stories of large snakes getting out of their cages and trying to get as high as they can. Knocking off everything on the shelves, etc...

I'm REALLY shocked she didn't knock over my DVD player and whatnot.

They're not stupid animals... she knows the process to open her cage. Hell, so do my spiders for that matter. I have to weigh their lids down so they can't get out.

The worst was her though. The Boa. My King Snake and Corn Snake both got out and I didn't think much of it. I figured they went down the heat registers or something, but eventually they both turned up.

Spiders, same thing. I know where to look. Recently, my big Emperor Scorpion got out so I turned off all the lights and used a black light to find her.

However, when a giant snake gets out, yeah... that's freaky.
