Zoe it's nearly perfect, aside a few typographical errors (hey we all do that anyways). One point though: The starch/flour solution won't work if the majority of the house is carpeted. I was wondering if anyone had a solution for that? In all my years of herp keeping I've only had one (or two?) animals escape, and my Tiger Salamander was one. (Boy, they don't look it, but they are smart!) I ended up finding him (who knows how he removed himself from a 10 gallon tank!?) underneath the dresser the tank was on. I didn't even know he was gone until I saw him waddling across the floor!
Good ideas though! You should make one for each gengre. (amphibians, lizards/geckos, snakes, turtles-*though I can't say I've ever heard of one escaping*etc.) =D
