Why don't you try laying some food down? A mouse? Or a large shallow water dish so she can have a drink.

Thats fantastic news! Now you just need the right moment to get her.

Hello nat, my male snow corn excaped too but we are very lucky because we have two cats and yea i thought that he was dead that my cats had ate him but just two days later after turning my house upside down, at 8:00 in the morning my brother saw that the cat had something and the cat run away and there he was very scared but ok apart from a few cuts on him from the cat but he's fine now...

Just don't give up she well turn up :)

All the best and good luck Sam

I had a corn escape several nights ago ( a bubba) thought I would never find it cos we are packing and there is boxes everywhere, she turned up this morning , In with the mice !! She was just sat there wondering what to do !!! perhaps you could put a mouse in a cage (defrost though) along with a hide and heat mat and hope she squeezes through the bars and eats then settles down in the hide.

4 months is a very long time but there is hope my friend lost his 2ft python in his mums house which is a very big 5 bedroom and they looked every where and about 8 months later they found him in the boiled room so he was lovely and warm but needed to stay in vets for a few days and he's ok now...

try and put some food/water down again and you might just catch her, i really do hope that you do get her back, and i named mine lucky cos the vet said that most cat's would have eaten it he was just sooo lucky...

All the best nat and i didn't mean to sound funny or anything like that :)

I lost one for 3 months.

Haven't followed any other threads but have you tried the bottle method - bottle with a small neck, that she will be able to get into - jam a mouse in there and the idea is they're too fat (and lazy) to squeeze out and are trapped in the bottle until the food is digested. If you can use a plastic bottle you can cut it open then to get her out in the morning. I haven't seen it working myself but in theory it is sound :)

I lost a kingsnake years ago,we got him back by setting up a heat mat on the floor with a cardboard box 1/2 on it as a hide,inside which we placed 5 brained fuzzies,hoping the scent would attract him and if so that he would choose to stay in the hide as it was warmed.Took 2 weeks and many smelly fuzzies but one morning,bingo,there he was all curled up and fat in the hide.Really hope you find him soon Nat
