We’ve been raising a Sinaloan Milk-snake for two years now and a couple of weeks ago it somehow managed to escape from the terrarium. We search the house pretty well a few time but sadly it was gone. Sarah and I were pretty bummed since we’d watched the hatchling grow to a pretty nice sized adult. So, after a few days of searching we decided to get another snake as a replacement. This time we went for a little cheaper snake and got a corn-snake. Below is a picture of him.
So, today I was cleaning out the laundry room and guess who I found, cold and alone between two painting stored next to the dryer. Yep… our Prodigal Milk-snake. Not the most remarkable Christmas miracle but hey… we’ll take what we get. Now we’re up to 2 dogs, 2 snakes, a cat, a tortoise and a bunch of fish. Next I think we’ll get a partridge in a pear tree.
